The Needs of Tribal Men and the Social Service Providers on or Near the Nez Perce Indian Nation.
High Eagle, Gordon; And Others
This report results from an action research project of the Nee Mee Poom Ha Hum (Men's Coalition), investigating the needs of tribal men in the Nez Perce Indian Nation, as part of planning to improve men's development. Research was directed toward interviewing a stratified random sample of tribal men and interviewing the directors and employees of 20 local agencies serving Native men. Findings include: (1) that men and women have similar opportunities from area agencies; (2) that as many, or more, services applicable to men have been added since 1985, then dropped; (3) that men often do not seek services for a variety of reasons, but the most common reason is that it is "not masculine" to ask for help; and (4) that the most needed services involve employment, chemical dependency, violence/anger/stress management, and self-esteem.
