In 1970, Lundeen was succeeded as superintendent by Vincent Little (a Mohave), who served until 1975. During his administration the paper appeared irregularly. Eight issues appeared in 1970-1971, apparently only four the next year, and ten each in 1972-1975. Students still reported the news, but after Loretta Secakuku ( 1970-1971), no student editors were listed for several years. The name was changed in 1971 to The Redskin.
Noah Allen replaced Little as superintendent in 1975. The title of the newspaper became The Redskin News in 1976 and The Redskin once again in 1979. In 1979-1980 it appeared monthly. Janice Silva was managing editor. In 1980- 1981 it began to appear quarterly, and a special senior number was issued. Jolene Lomatska and Christine Manuel were editors.
It is difficult to determine exactly when the superintendents relinquished editorial control. There was overt control in some Indian schools until 1970, and in others the superintendent still reserves the right to look at the content before it goes to press. Certainly, when the paper became simply a school newsletter, the superintendents no longer submitted editorials and the student control became more pronounced. As one of the longest-running publications of the U.S. Indian schools, The Redskin provides insight into the changes that have occurred in matters ranging from educational philosophy to curriculum in those schools.
