The Culture is Prevention Project: Adapting the Cultural Connectedness Scale for Multi-Tribal Communities


This journal article focuses on the methods and results from Phase 3 of the Culture is Prevention Project where the 29-item Cultural Connectedness Scale (CCS), developed in Canada, was adapted to be appropriate for California's multi-tribal communities. The resulting new Cultural Connectivity Scale – California (CCS-CA) was developed by urban American Indian/Alaska Native people for urban AI/AN people. The process, instrument, how to adapt for specific communities, and implications are reviewed.
