The investigation found that children on the Warm Springs Reservation in central Oregon die at a rate more than three times that for Oregon and nearly twice for Native Americans nationwide. Many of the deaths of 58 children since 1990 occurred because tribal leaders have not pursued basic steps proven to reduce mortality rates on reservations. Some causes for the deaths are due to a lack of seatbelt laws, scaling back of sobriety checkpoints, and failures in the child welfare system.
