Sixty-five persons of Indian origin and thirteen non-Indians were interviewed. The formal questionnaire, the semi-structured interview and participant observation were the chief techniques which were employed in the collection of data; concepts of socialization, reference group, and group interaction, which have been advanced by Eisenstadt, Merton and Simmel are adopted as the framework of exploration. Data did not conclusively support the anticipated findings. Responses to the limited interviews revealed education and employment as predominating reasons for migration. The adjustments,which had to be undergone in the off-reservation setting.were effected with the aid of social agencies rather than with that of family relations.|
