5 ocial, Psychological and Economic Stressors: Highly correlated with substance abuse among Native Americans Causes: Historical Trauma -- genetic memory -- unresolved grief -- soul wounding Forced Removals Boarding Schools Destabilization of Families Economic Disadvantages Etc.

6 Health Disparities Disparity and dispossession go hand in hand. The massive dispossession that removed Native people from their ancestral lands not to mention genocide and cultural eradication that followed can hardly be imagined by most people. This dispossession is at the root of our health disparities. Michael Bird, 2002 Former President of the Amer. Public Health Assoc. Current Exec. Dir. Of National Native American AIDS Prevention Center

7 Loss of culture has been the primary cause of many of Native American s existing social problems, especially those associated with alcohol methods to measure Native American cultural beliefs and values have not been well developed. Fred Beauvais, PhD

The orange inner circle symbolizes the sacred eternal fire. The live oak the traditional principal hardwood timber of the Cherokee people, was used to kindle the sacred fire. In connection with this fire, the oak was a symbol of strength and everlasting life. These colors are used in the seal of the Cherokee Nation.

31 Community Partnership to Affect Cherokee-Keetoowah Adolescent Substance Abuse Funded By: The National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIH) R01 DA A2 Endorsed By: United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians

32 COMMUNITY-BASED PARTICIPATORY RESEARCH (CBPR) Stringer (1999) CBPR favors participatory processes that enable people to thoughtfully evaluate their situation and determine solutions that fit their problems which demand consideration of the cultural context. The core quality of CBPR is community-researcher engagement for all phases with the underlying intention of building community capacity and improving community health. Stringer, E.T. (1999). Action Research (2 nd edition). Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage

33 Specific Aims a. Create a community partnership steering committee; b. Assess the Cherokee-Keetoowah community needs regarding substance abuse; c. Partner with the Cherokee-Keetoowah community to create culturally competent intervention materials and select culturally appropriate outcome measures; d. Evaluate the difference in substance abuse, Cherokee selfreliance, and stress for Cherokee-Keetoowah adolescents who receive the culturally competent intervention and those who receive standard substance abuse education.

34 Three Phases: 1. Look the researcher engages with the community to clearly articulate the problem, as it exists within the community context. 2. Think community stakeholders views are synthesized to create an inclusive perspective of the problem, which can be addressed with action. 3. Act goals, objectives and tasks are identified and community stakeholders are engaged in the process of affecting the change.
