Abstract Using the Epp Health Promotion framework, this paper identifies strengths for Native Health Promotion that are found in Native culture. Learning to integrate Native culture with professional practice is an ethical responsibility. In the context of bioethics, biomedical schemes for Native health must be based in bioethics which have cultural knowledge at the core. The data presented in our article derives from our work in many regions of North America.

Se servant du cadre de référence EPP pour la promotion de la santé, cet article identifie des points forts de la culture autochtone pour la promotion de la santé. L'intégration de la culture autochtone à la pratique professionnelle constitue une responsabilité d'ordre éthique. Les programmes biomédicaux pour la santé des autochtones doivent s'inspirer d'une bioéthique basée sur une solide connaissance de la culture. Les données présentées dans l'article découlent de travaux effectués dans de nombreuses régions de l'Amérique du Nord.
