This chapter provides information and advice to audiences at the practice, program management, and governance levels concerned with “evidence-based programs and practices” in Native Communities. The authors emphasize a defense of culture-based knowledge and practice because the systematic attempt to impose an “evidence-based” mandate on providers of behavioral health services in Native Communities has not been an incentive to incorporate scientifically tested information about interventions. The approach recommended here respects and accommodates culture-based knowledge, ways of knowing, and practice in Native Communities while facilitating the uptake of science-based knowledge.
