It is difficult to say exactly when the superintendents relinquished editorial control. While it is apparent that after World War II students played a more prominent role in the editing process, the superintendents of Indian schools, where the papers were published entirely or in part by Bureau of Indian Affairs funds, at least nominally oversaw the production of the papers until 1970. And in some schools, they still retain the right to look at copy before it goes to press.
The Indian Leader is still ( 1982) published bimonthly by the Haskell Indian Junior College, which Haskell Institute was renamed in 1964. It is one of the longest-surviving Indian school publications and as such provides a clear and interesting record of the policies, philosophies, and curricula that have prevailed in Indian education in the twentieth century.
