When working with American Indian/Alaska Native students, contextual and cultural matters. Social and emotional approaches must be modified to address cultural differences for a successful outcome. A practical approach that is culturally responsive among American Indian/Alaska Native students towards their academics, behaviors, and emotional learning, is imperative for those facilitating the learning among these students to understand the cultural dynamics and experiences (Cultural-Emotional Learning) as they enter their school buildings. Cultural-Emotional Learning for American Indian/Alaska Native students is a methodology for faculty/educators working with American Indian/Alaskan Native students to assist them in the initial cultural dialog in developing cultural understandings and cultural knowledge to identify and regulate emotions for health outcomes. This paper will examine the connections between cultural-emotional learning and academic achievement in AI/AN students through the cultural lens of practitioners and educators.
