METHODS:

To address the diverse cultural and scientific issues, the faculty presented customized workshops during conferences for Native American college students.

RESULTS:

The authors discuss current issues and techniques in cancer education in Native American communities.

CONCLUSIONS:

Better understanding of tribal culture among researchers will enhance Native Americans' collaboration in research.
