Dr. Tawna Skousen remarks in her article (PDF) that the most resilient Native Americans are those who are able to take on both qualities of their tradition along with qualities of American mainstream culture. As the mainstream culture is quite individualistic, and the native culture more community-oriented, she asks the following question: If Native Americans are healthier when they develop a bi-cultural orientation; could the same be said of us [non-natives]?

What do you think? How has having a bi- or multi-cultural awareness benefited you?
