May (1982) classified a number of Native American tribes into 2 levels of stress associated with acculturation with white society & 3 levels of traditional integration. Suicide rates for 18 of these tribes were available from Lester (1997). Results showed suicide rates were positively associated, as expected, in Native American tribes with acculturation stress & negatively with traditional integration. (2 refs.)
