This study investigated the patterns of student involvement, the level of satisfaction and acculturation of American Indian college students to determine if a relationship existed between these processes. This study gathered data from 139 students between the ages of 18-54 who self-identify as American Indian. This study included men and women. Four state colleges and universities participated in the study. Data was gathered in the spring semester 2016 using two instruments: the College Student Experience Questionnaire (CSEQ) and the Native American Acculturation scale (NAAS) that were combined on an on-line survey. The data analysis used descriptive statistics, with a T-Test (Independent /Group), Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) a Multiple Regression and a Pearson Product Moment correlation coefficient to measure the relationships between independent and dependent variables of demographics, acculturation, satisfaction, and participation in college activities (academic, non-academic, cultural programs and support services). This study is based on the theories of discontinuity and transculturation.
