With sixteen charter members who came together within a month or so, the Task Force on Indigenous Psychology was up and running without a hitch. Within one year, the Task Force had 62 members from over 20 countries around the globe. In two years, the Task force has evolved into a burgeoning international community of researchers in cross cultural, cultural, and indigenous psychology, as well as related fields, such as anthropology, sociology, and linguistics.
What brings this group of people together is their concern and interest in moving the field of IP forward. With more than two hundred members around the globe, the Task Force has a Website: http://www.indigenouspsych.org/ and a dedicated publication outlet: Palgrave Studies in Indigenous Psychology: http://indigenouspsych.org/…/HR_A41373_Indigenous_Psych_ima….
