The main purpose of this study was to explore the relationships among cultural capital, ethnic identity, and academic achievement of aboriginal junior high students. The study examined the differences of cultural capital and ethnic identity in different gender, grade, and living areas. A total of 1,044 aboriginal junior high students were randomly selected from aboriginal areas in Taiwan. They completed a set of instruments assessing their cultural capital and ethnic identity. The statistical methods used to analyze the data were descriptive statistics, One-way MANOVA, product-moment correlation, canonical correlation, and stepwise regression analysis.
The main findings of this study were summarized as follows:
1. The level of aboriginal junior high school girl students’ ethnic identity were significantly higher than that of boy students.
2. The higher grade students were, the better mother tongue ability students had.
3. The higher grade students were, the higher level of ethnic identity students had.
4. Aboriginal junior high school students who lived in south Taiwan had higher cultural capital and ethnic identity than those in other areas in Taiwan.
5. There were significant positive correlations among the cultural capital, ethnic identity, and academic achievement.
6. There were significant canonical correlations among family cultural participation, family cultural environment, mother tongue ability, ethnic sense of belonging, and ethnic self-identification.
7. Students’ negative cultural capital could significantly predict their academic achievement.
8. Students’ ethnic awareness, ethnic sense of belonging, and ethnic attitudes could significantly predict their academic achievement.
Finally, some suggestions for students themselves, parents, teachers, schools, and future research were proposed according to the results.
