As a result of a 30-year study of Hopi suicide, the authors concluded certain elememts of causation would not be acceptable to the Hopi in the development of a suicide prevention program: these include an emphasis on youth as “troubled”; & any indication that suicide was related to acculturation or tradition. A successful program would not be tied to tribal or federal government, & would attract individuals not presently at risk. 37 Ref. (NBB)
