They were being displaced by younger people who spoke English and were competitive for political power. These young people, educated in BIA or mission schools, had been taught to look down on their Native American heritage. They had been systematically denied information about their own history and traditions, and they had become marginal to both Native and white society. From 1956 to 1967, therefore, McNickle was involved with a six-week summer leadership training workshop designed explicitly to help Native American college students develop a positive image of their Indian identity and of themselves as tribal members.
McNickle's community development program in the 1950s among the Navajos at Crownpoint, New Mexico, reflected his desire to remove various impediments to change that had locked those people into a cycle of frustration and hopelessness. He believed that, once they were introduced to the technical advances available through white society, they would move toward adaptation and acculturation. As director of American Indian Development (AID), the program adjunct of NCAI, McNickle gathered together a core group of traditional Navajo leaders.
He also contributed a brief descriptive piece on Indian basketry in July 1940. Of greater importance than his book reviews in reflecting his own opinions were four other articles in Indians at Work that revealed the direction of his growth in the field of cultural anthropology. McNickle had first become interested in linguistics when, working on The Surrounded, he encountered the problem of translating folk tales from an oral tradition into written English. In "What Do the Old Men Say," an article in Indians at Work, December 1941 (2426), he addressed the fact that, among Indians, the old men who were traditional leaders had been quite literally robbed of their voice because they spoke no English.
