Abstract

This investigation relates several social, cultural, and aspirational factors to college achievement among Sioux and white students. Analysis indicated that college achievement for whites is related to social factors, such as, high school GPA and parental encouragement to attend school, whereas, retention of native cultural traditions seems to contribute to higher educational success for Sioux students.
