The survey instrument was designed over the preceding eight months with the help of individuals familiar with, and in need of information about, aspects of the WRIR. This was also a period of intense qualitative research for the project staff: contacting key informants, conducting in-depth interviews, correcting housing maps of the reservation, working with individuals who had previously done research on the WRIR, and systematically recording observations.
When the survey data were assembled, individuals on the WRIR familiar with aspects of the information (for example, housing quality, adolescent problems, health) were involved in discussions about how to interpret, assemble, communicate, and use the data.
The thesis of embeddedness is extremely useful in understanding patterns of lire on the WRIR, as on Indian reservations elsewhere (for example, Pickering 2000; Ward 1998).
