Title: New Paradigms in Native American Social and Behavioral Intervention Research
Lead Author: Dolezal, Jake A.
Abstract: In 2008, Harvard University recognized the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma with High Honors for its domestic violence intervention program, Project Falvmmichi. "Falvmmichi" is a Choctaw word that means, "to reclaim"thus the goal of Falvmmichi is to reclaim their youth from the pervasive cycle of domestic violence. Currently, over 300 teen mentors present curriculum on a monthly basis to 73 second grade classrooms within the Choctaw Nation. Evaluations of the program have shown remarkable initial success in the six years since its inception. This whitepaper discusses the standing questions in the research field resultant from the success of Falvmmichi. In addition, applicable challenge questions to the research community, the capacity to be created by such research, potential methodological approaches, the range of disciplines, and implications for future research are presented. Considering the growing prominence of the Native American presence on our cultural landscape and the paucity of relevant and empathic research around this ethnocultural group, social and behavioral issues in Native American communities are an uncultivated green field of research opportunity.
