This research investigates the question, using qualitative methodology, why Native Americans return to reservation areas in South Dakota after living elsewhere. Rational choice theory helps explain this return migration more successfully than other orientations. Interviews were conducted with 36 return migrants using a key informant and snowball sampling techniques.
