Abstract

American Indian cultural worldview is vastly different from the dominant cultural worldview. Culture affects the type and quality of rehabilitation services provided to American Indian people with disabilities. This paper explores the differences in cultural worldview between the American Indian people and the dominant cultural worldview and offers an overview of the Orthogonal Cultural Identification Model to assess culture.
