I have seen references to teenagers in some of the questions. However, my question is in regard to how adolescents and teenagers act in aboriginal (Leaver) cultures as opposed to modern (Taker) cultures, especially North American. The reason I ask is that I believe young people are the canaries in the mine and react according to the environments they’re raised in. It’s not news that youngsters in Taker societies have a very difficult time, and it seems to be getting worse. Have there been any studies comparing modern teen behavior to aboriginal teen behavior? Are teens in all cultures basically the same, or are there significant differences that point to cultural stressors?
