The current research and evaluation of the American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) people demonstrates the increased demand for efficiency, accompanied by solid accountability in a time of extremely limited resources. This environment requires proficiency in working with these vulnerable populations in diverse cross- cultural settings. This timely publication is the first of its kind to provide this information to help researchers meet their demands. The authors have a very solid and comprehensive understanding of work in this setting. With decades of expertise working as researchers in AIAN communities, the authors have applied their knowledge by selecting key issues for discussion and examining the way in which these topics are applied to the AIAN community in a forthright manner. This book provides an overview of complex themes as well as a synopsis of essential concepts or techniques in working with Native American tribes and Alaska Native communities. Conducting Health Research with Native American Communities will benefit Native people and organizations as well as researchers, students and practitioners.
