American Indian Advisory Council
The American Indian Advisory Council began in 1998, a collaboration between California’s American Indian community and the Department of Rehabilitation.

- Increase knowledge of aids and devices, and reasonable accommodations that help with job tasks.
- Learn about issues such as diabetes, depression, and chemical dependency from experts in Native American health care.
- Encourage local collaboration between American Indian organizations and the Dept. of Rehabilitation field offices.
