Members of this section share an interest in providing psychological services to Native American/Indigenous people in the United States and Canada. While not exclusive, many professionals in this section work with reservations or reserves, employed by tribes, urban Native American/First Nation programs, or the Indian Health Service. However, anyone who works with and for, or has a passion for advocacy for the wellness of, Indigenous people are welcome to this section. This section raises awareness around Indigenous experiences of health inequity, advocacy for issues and concerns, encourages best practices informed by culturally informed care, and is a communication network among their members who may work in isolated areas geographically or professionally. As the newest section in Div. 18, we welcome all who have an interest in serving Native people.
