The Relationship of Policy Preferences and Value Orientations Among Tribal Leaders and Anglo Administrators on Four North Dakota Reservations.
Wanberg, Larrie Dale
Employing a background information questionnaire, a policy preference scale, and the Kluckhohn Value Orientation Scale, 40 American Indian tribal leaders and 35 Anglo administrators from 4 North Dakota reservations were surveyed to explore preferences for problem-solving approaches in the field of child welfare. The following hypotheses were tested: (1) there will be a significant difference between the value orientations expressed by Indian tribal leaders and Anglo administrators; (2) there will be a significant difference between Indian policy preferences and those of the Anglos; (3) there will be a positive correlation between the policy preferences and value orientations of both groups. Policy preferences, value orientations, and policy-value correlations were examined in terms of man-nature, time, activity, and relational orientations. The respondents' approaches to solving child welfare problems were analyzed in terms of the following problem areas: unwed mothers; child neglect; family planning; day care; drug abuse; unemployment; delinquency; truancy; dropouts; learning problems; adoption; and alcoholism. Findings indicated Anglo and Indian value orientations were significantly different; policy preferences were also significantly different, but there were no correlations for either group between value orientations and policy preferences.
