Resistance Theory and the Transculturation Hypothesis as Explanations of College Attrition and Persistence among Culturally Traditional American Indian Students.
Huffman, Terry
Journal of American Indian Education, v40 n3 p1-23 2001
A 5-year study examined the educational experiences of 69 culturally traditional American Indian students at a small midwestern university. Although all students experienced initial alienation, strength of ethnic identity enabled "transcultural" students to engage non-Indian culture without assimilation and successfully complete college. Insecure ethnic identity appeared to be a factor in "estranged" students' difficulties. (Contains 43 references.) (TD)
