ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study was to explore Native American students' participation patterns and self-reported physical activities. Participants (N= 376) completed the previously validated Physical Activity Questionnaire (PAQ) a four part 83-item recall questionnaire from the NIH Pathways Study. Data analyses included internal consistency reliability, descriptive statistics and Kappa tests investigating stability over reporting time periods. Similar to urban students' reports, these Native American students reported frequent participation in only a few types of physical activities along with common reports of sedentary behaviors. While this study adds to our knowledge of Native American students' physical activity preferences and activity patterns, more information is needed to aid development of specific, culturally relevant physical activity programming.
