    Abstract: This study focuses on the pre-legislative history of the Michigan Indian Tuition Waiver (MITW). Much of the relevant history for this analysis of Public Act 174, of 1976 (The Michigan Indian Tuition Waiver Act) does not exist in document form, but within oral history. Testimonies from individuals involved in the development of the MITW are recorded, analyzed, and juxtaposed with media accounts to complete the pre-legislative history of the MITW. The main research question explored in depth is: What social and legal factors of the late 1960s and early 1970s influenced the development of the MITW? Included in the narrative are sections that focus on important social and legal considerations in the development of the MITW. This thesis will be useful for legislators and other makers of public policy, especially those involved in the administration of the MITW.
