Posts Published by Native American Caucus

ASHA's Native American Caucus was formed in 1986, when speech-language pathologists and audiologists who had a common interest in the unique attributes of the Native American culture met at the ASHA Convention for the first time. To this day, members include Native American and Alaska-Native clinicians, researchers, and students; as well as non-Native clinicians, researchers, and students who serve Native American communities. Caucus Co-Chairs are Shine Burnette, CCC-SLP (White Mountain Apache Tribe), and Molly Rutledge, CCC-SLP. Advisory Council members include Christine B. Vining, PhD, CCC-SLP (Diné), Joshuaa Allison-Burbank, PhD, CCC-SLP (Diné & Acoma Pueblo), and Matthew Gillispie, PhD, CCC-SLP (Muscogee Nation).
