The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of a sexuality education series on decision-making strategies and knowledge of human sexuality upon Native American females who were not involved in a family unit. This program was developed and adapted with the theory that if students were presented with human sexuality information and decision-making techniques, they would be better prepared to make responsible decision about their own sexuality.
