dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between cultural involvement with American Indian and mainstream American cultures, and ethnic identity, psychosocial adjustment (depression, self-esteem, and loneliness), and engagement in risky behavior (impulsivity, risk-taking and sensation seeking) among American Indian adults. Also examined was whether level of ethnic identity or loneliness served as mediating variables for the relationship between cultural involvement and psychosocial adjustment and risky behavior engagement. Participants (N = 71) were recruited for the paper survey from the Rosebud Sioux reservation in South Dakota. The study found that greater American Indian cultural involvement was related to higher ethnic identity, and that greater mainstream American identity was related decreased loneliness. Ethnic identity and loneliness as mediating variables were not supported. en
