This program provides an overview of traditional Native American cultures, including historical factors that play a part in the health and wellbeing of many Native communities. These historical factors also play a large role in the development of the applicable law, which has unique and complex features that are foreign to traditional American law principles. Attendees will come away with improved knowledge and skills to respond to cultural differences, and better understanding of the significant Native American community in our State.
