An Acculturation Problem Check List Study of the Band of Chippewa Indians of the Turtle Mountain Reservation, Belcourt, North Dakota.
Brochin, Bridget
Purposes of this study were (1) to show the number and types of problems that the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians of Belcourt, North Dakota, believe they have; (2) to ascertain the problem areas that are of greatest significance to the Indians; and (3) to compare the number and types of problems that these Indians believe they have with the problems of a control group in the non-Indian Borough of Indiana, Pennsylvania. A total of 92 junior high students, 58 high school students, 35 college students, and 82 adult Indians participated in the study. The control group was composed of 103 junior high students, 97 high school students, 40 college students, and 45 adults. The instrument used was the "Problem Check List" (Rural Youth Form, Junior High School Form, College Form, and Adult Form). The problems were totaled by areas (health and physical concerns, relationship with people, citizenship, education, vocational and economic concerns, morals and religion, personal temperament, courtship and marriage, social and recreational concerns, and home and family), sex, levels, and groups. A percentage was computed for every problem in every group and level for all females and males. An analysis of selected significant percentages was then made. It was concluded that the Turtle Mountain Reservation group and the control group problem incidences were not significantly different, but the females in both groups reported more problems than did the males.
