Respect is the approach that all initiatives dealing with American Indians and Indian communities must not be antagonistic toward traditional tribal perspectives and beliefs.

Respectful work should do no harm to these traditions, nor should it treat them as quaint and simplistic vestiges of the past. Respect is reverential.
