Summary

A survey of research on the peer society of American Indians reveals that little is known about this topic. American Indian populations, especially peer societies of young Indians, constitute one of the most difficult groups on whom to conduct research. Although Indian students respond docilely to self-administered questionnaires, such instruments are relatively imprecise for reporting the nature of Indian peer societies. One basic method suggested for gathering data is the community study type. The best research procedure would involve relatively lengthy subprojects by small research teams, each consisting of 1 or 2 graduate students at the doctoral level. When the subprojects had been completed, it would then be possible for a "principal investigator" to review the findings in order to judge how survey or other techniques might be utilized in order to generalize the findings.
