Cultural Humility: Working in and with Tribal Communities
Cultural humility, a process of reflection and lifelong inquiry, involves self-awareness of personal and cultural biases as well as awareness and sensitivity to significant cultural issues of others. Core to the process of cultural humility is the deliberate reflection on our values and biases. Practicing cultural humility not only means understanding how our values and biases can potentially cause harm to those we serve but also finding ways to work collaboratively with others, and their values and cultural beliefs, to provide the best service possible.

- Recognize the importance of racial and ethnic identity development particularly for American Indian youth
