Native American Pioneers in Psychology

As part of a continuing effort to expand the information available through the online OSU Psychology Museum, we are proud to present Native-American Pioneers in Psychology. On this site, you will find brief biographies on many early Native-American psychologists, as well as links to more information available on the web. The purpose of this page is not provide a comprehensive overview of those Native-American men and women who contributed to psychology. Instead, this page should serve as an overview to the area, serving as a starting point for those who wish to explore this topic further.
Several people have contributed to the development of this site. Dr. Charles Abramson led the development while the information on the psychologists profiled within came from the research of Brittney Becker, Dr. Trimble and Dr. Chaney.
