This paper explores the socio-educational needs and reviews the acculturation stressors that American Indian students encounter while attending school. Also described are the effects that these stressors had on a selected group of American Indian adolescent students attending school in a Southwestern school district. Social work with groups is presented as a culturally grounded intervention to maximize students' efforts to achieve and maintain a certain level of biculturalism. Specific findings from the case study are presented and implications are shared for possible future replication of this approach.
