This SAMHSA guide is intended to serve as a general briefing to enhance cultural competence while providing services to American Indian/Alaska Native communities. Cultural competence is defined as the ability to function effectively in the context of cultural differences. A more specific orientation or training should be provided by a member of the particular AI/AN community.
