The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

American Indian Experiences with Home Ownership.

Abariotes, Andriana and John Poupart.

American Indians are more often rejected for homeowner's loans than are whites. This 1996 study, a collaborative effort of CURA with the American Indian Research and Policy Institute and the University's Roy Wilkins Center, looked for cultural explanations behind the discrepancy. Creating a new model for studies about Indians, the researchers involved people from the Indian community, using focus groups and individual conversations, to learn about Indian experiences with home ownership. Ownership is a concept that is historically alien to the once nomadic Indians. The stories Indians shared may help the larger community and policy makers grasp this people's reality. For the full report, see American Indians and Home Ownership, M9511.
