The People Who Give More: Health and Mental Health among the Contemporary Puyallup Indian Tribal Community

George M. Guilmet, PhD and David L. Whited, MFA

This monograph is a contemporary ethnographic analysis of the Puyallup Indian Tribal urban health care system (with a particular emphasis on mental health issues), and an attempt to place this system in ethnohistorical perspective. The research reported herein is concerned with the broader issue of appropriate ways to introduce new technology in cross-cultural contexts. The nature of the good with respect to the introduction of technology is not always clear, nor are the motivations of the culture brokers and other participants in culture change. This is part of the second volume of The Journal of the National Center for American Indian and Alaska Native Mental Health Research.
