Canadian and American Indians: An overview of approaches to research

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • The purpose of this report is to briefly summarize the findings of a review of the literature relating to the personal and social adjustment of native peoples. The focus has been particularly on approaches to conceptualization and methodology rather than study results or conclusions. While there has recently been a plethora of material written about the American Indian, a large number of studies are general and speculative in nature rather than research oriented. It has been the procedure in this study to review only studies utilizing some method of data collection which is explicitly described. (A small number of non-empirical studies have been included in the bibliography because they must be considered as classics.)
