Bio/Research

Whether working with substance abuse, nursing homes or child welfare issues, Hilary Weaver is interested in how cultural distinctions fit into helping people. With its many ethnic populations, she says, Buffalo is a great place to put those ideas to work.“The social work profession has a mission to work with disenfranchised populations,” Weaver says, “and that includes being culturally responsive, to be able to address and be effective with people of diverse backgrounds.”Weaver has received funding from the National Cancer Institute to develop and test a culturally-grounded wellness curriculum for urban Native American youth, the Healthy Living in Two Worlds program. She has presented her work regionally, nationally and internationally including at the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues at the United Nations. She has numerous publications including Explorations in Cultural Competence: Journeys to the Four Directions (2005) and an edited book, Social Issues in Contemporary Native America: Reflections from Turtle Island (2014).
