This report, sponsored by the Minority Studies Center of the National Institute of Mental Health, was conceived, researched and written by Native Americans. To answer questions about the problems young Native American families were facing raising children, the authors conducted a three-year study of 120 families who resided primarily in Oakland, California, and the surrounding area. Some areas of interest in the study include Indian identity, experiences of Native American parents and children in the city, the urbanization process, and social policy recommendations.
