Approximately 1.9 million people self-identified as American Indian/Alaska Natives (AIAN) in the 1990 Census. There are 554 federally recognized Indian tribes in the United States -- the only group with a recognized political status with the U.S. government. These tribes are recognized sovereign nations within the United States. AIAN are the only "minority" group which has direct government-to-government relations with the United States.

This review summarizes literature on culturally competent HIV/AIDS prevention for AIAN. Because so little is found on this subject, publications regarding cultural competence and related public health issues are also included. This review will be useful in the development of culturally competent interventions as well as data collection, policy development, programming and resource allocation for the prevention of HIV/AIDS and related public health areas.
