due to a return of the repressed may be thought of as reasonably well proved.
It is likewise, characteristic of the Mohave that the repressed material erupting during drunkenness should be aggressive and orally incestuous or aggressively sexual rather than maturely genital, since, on the whole, the average Mohave appears to have attained a reasonably high degree of psychosexual maturity.
The historical, sociocultural, ego-psychological and unconscious aspects of Mohave alcoholism have been described and discussed. It was found that drinking has become fairly fully integrated with present-day Mohave culture and with Mohave psychology as well. The absence of a high level of anxiety and the preservation of certain basic cultural attitudes probably explain why, on the whole, the intoxicated Mohave is not aggressively antisocial, and why Mohave society has fairly successfully withstood the ravages of alcoholism observed in many other American Indian tribes.
