ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
The purpose of this study was to explore the degree to which Native American culture impacts the resiliency of Native American students earning degrees at three tribal colleges in the southwestern part of the United States. This study was a qualitative case study that was based on the following research question: "How does Native American culture contribute to the resiliency of Native American students who are earning a degree at a tribal college?" The study focused on the concerns of Native American students, and the cultural events they may have encountered during their educational journey. To answer the research question data was collected from interviews of 18 Native American students, who were in their last year of college. Themes surrounding culture, resiliency, tribal colleges, academics and Native American role models were discovered and used to determine the impact Native American culture has on the resiliency of Native American students.
