Gary L. Whaley Norfolk State University Moncef Belhadjali Norfolk State University ABSTRACT A study of the Native American racial/ethnic group in the military and federal service reveals some striking differences in perceptions and attitudes of this group when compared to other ethnic groups employed within the Department of Defense. These differences would give cause for concern for any Equal Employment Officer (EEO). The purpose of this paper is to examine the Military Equal Opportunity Climate Survey (MEOCS) data to determine the depth, and breathe of the observed differences for the American Indian/Alaskan Native ethnic group. Further we will offer possible theoretical explanation as to why the Native American and Alaska Native ethnic group does standout from other races/ethnic groups on these measures of perceptions and attitude. This study is clearly in the initial stages and suggestions for future research are offered.
