This was an exploratory study using cross-sectional survey design. The choice of design was based on nursing’s lack of research and knowledge concerning the relationship among spirituality, cultural affiliation, and self-car agency. The study used three instruments: (a) Cultural Affiliation Scale (CAS), (b) Spiritual Perspective Scale (SPS), and (c) Self-As-Carer Inventory (SCI). A non-probability sample of 234 Native American subjects was obtained from the clients of a primary health clinic in Northeastern Oklahoma. The Euro-American sample of 137 subjects was obtained by mailed surveys using random sampling techniques. Both samples demonstrated high level of spirituality with an average score of 5.01 out of a possible score of 6. Both samples also demonstrated a high level of self-care agency with an average score of 200.22 out of a maximum of 240. There was no statistical difference in the level of cultural affiliation. The scores in the two groups were practically identical at 21 out of a possible score of 59. In the Native American. Sample the relationships of spirituality and cultural affiliation to self-care agency was significant at the .01 level determined by Spearman Rho correlations. In the Euro-American sample, there were no significant relationships found. A more global definition of spirituality was found in the Native American sample. This study validated the need for additional research with spirituality, cultural affiliation, and self-care agency as the relationships remain ill defined. Also further study is needed to confirm the Native American view of spirituality.
