Differential Deviance and Social Control Mechanisms among Two Groups of Yup'ik Eskimo.
Lee, Nella
American Indian and Alaska Native Mental Health Research, v5 n2 p57-72 1993
Compared crime rates of Alaska Native villages operating under Western social control with those of villages maintaining sovereign control (Yupi'it Nation villages). Hypothesized a link between degree of assimilation into Western culture and social disorganization. Rates for felonies and misdemeanors were lower in Nation villages, except for liquor violations, public drunkenness, and protective custody incidents. (KS)
