This study aims to 1) elicit representations of diabetes, arthritis, and health from Muskoke Indians with and without diabetes, 2) elicit their views of traditional and Western helping systems and of culturally appropriate behavior for health professionals, 3) assess signs of diabetes and health in the tribe, and 4) identify culturally appropriate nursing interventions for diabetes. Fifty same-sex pairs of diabetics and nondiabetics will respond to an interview based on Leventhal's model of self-regulation in chronic illness and undergo a nursing history and physical assessment. Data analysis will include individual and group profiles on physical data and prototypical and idiosyncratic narratives of illness identity, causation, duration, and consequences. This research is significant because of the prevalence of diabetes among Indians, the multidisciplinary approach, and the need to understand the interplay of culture and biology and cultural perspectives as a basis for effective intervention.
