Historical Note

The Commission on Indian Affairs was established in 1955 (1955 NM Laws, Chp. 162, Sec. 1-7). This law was amended in 1975 and the Commission's name was changed to the Office of Indian Affairs and it was adminitratively attached to the Human Services Dept. (1975 NM Laws, Chp. 11, Sec. 1-4). In 1955 the functions of the Commission were to investigate, study and consider Indian conditions and relations. In 1975 two more duties were added: 1. to coordinate inter-governmental programs concerning tribal governments and the state of New Mexico and 2. to set policy for all state programs affecting Indians of New Mexico.
