Abstract (summary)

This study is a survey of sixty Native Americans between 12-24 years of age. Thirty were graduates and thirty were non-graduates. The four sets of variables examined were: early pregnancy, drug and alcohol use, cultural values, and mentoring. The reliability of three factors (mentors, substance abuse and cultural factors) were consistent with what might be expected in a random scale of 60 participants with a researcher developed scale. It was, however, the category developed to address having or not having children that proved to be of the most statistical significance.
