American Indian Life Skills Development Curriculum by Teresa D. LaFromboise

Suicide is a major problem for many adolescents in Native American Indian populations. After first increasing awareness and knowledge of suicide, this book teaches students specific methods and life skills to help a peer turn away from suicidal thinking and seek help from an appropriate help-giver.


American Indian Life Skills has been a very successful program at Sequoyah High School. Having a curriculum that addresses many of today's concerns from a Native American base has greatly benefited our students. It has offered students opportunities to be actively involved in a classroom community. By addressing different learning styles, American Indian Life Skills helps students to understand and talk about such issues as depression, stress, sexuality, and grieving. This program has changed many lives including mine. It would be a beneficial program for anyone working with adolescents. I highly recommend it! --J. Rachel Green, Life Skills Teacher, Sequoyah High School, Tahlequah, Oklahoma
