Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between racial awareness and racial identification of American Indian children with exposure to the American Indian movement and self-concept. The sample for the study consisted of 45 American Indian children randomly selected from the Pembroke Elementary School in Pembroke, North Carolina, who represented Indian children exposed to a strong native-American movement, and 45 American Indian children randomly selected from the North Carolina counties of Guilford, Sampson, and Richmond, who represented children not exposed to a strong native-American movement. The grade levels of the subjects were kindergarten, second, and fourth grade.
