Indian community. . . . [It] challenges both psychiatric and anthropological understandings while providing what is arguably the finest cultural account of depression currently available."—Byron J. Good, co-editor of Pain as Human Experience

O'Nell (National Center for American Indian and Alaska Native Mental Health Research) draws on recent anthropological theory to relate depression on the Flathead Reservation in Montana to the culturally organized experiences of an oppressed people. She examines narratives of depression by Flathead residents, and describes American Indian depression as an interplay of ideas of the self and the family, ethnic identity, and relations between Indians and whites.
