This chapter describes the history of alcohol use on the reservation. About equal proportions of those who lived off the reservation reported drinking primarily with “working class” and “middle class” non-Indians. In addition, a substantial proportion of the Navajo population in both the east and the west has been reared in border towns since 1970. Attitudes about drinking and drinking behaviors have been shaped, in part, by these factors.

Keywords: non-Indians; drinking patterns; reservation; alcohol consumption
