KPIX's Jay Newburn interviews activist Harvey Wells who claims that they represent a united Indian nation, who want recognition as one "nationalistic body," so they may govern their own affairs. He goes on to declare: "We want to industrialize the reservations and have our people pushed into professional careers and management positions ... so that economically we can rise as individuals also."
