Data from self-reports of high school students (N=1,353) representing three culturally distinct American Indian tribes were analyzed for tribal differences in factors associated with suicidal ideation. No single correlate was common to all three tribes; the correlates were consistent with each tribe's social structure, conceptualization of individual and gender roles, support systems, and conceptualization of death.
