Family Support Networks among Elders in a Native American Community: Contact with Children and Siblings among the Prairie Band Potawatomi

Study primarily consisted of interviews with 19 elders about contact with each child and sibling with respect to nine common activities: recreation, visits to talk, family gatherings, participation in religious activities, telephone conversations, sharing a meal, exchanging gifts, and giving or receiving help. The effects of proximity, gender, marital status and equity of helping relationship were then analyzed.
