Oklahoma newspaper supports efforts to increase Native student enrollment at Bacone College, which was established in 1880 as an Indian university:
Bacone officials are trying to restore some of the Native culture to campus and recruit more Natives to attend.

Those are both very worthy goals that we support.

The Native American race appears destined to disappear.

There are fewer and fewer full-blood Natives these days.

And even fewer full-blood, one-tribe Natives.

The Native languages are not being preserved as they have been in the past.
