RACIAL AND ETHNIC IDENTITY AND DEVELOPMENT 43 Garrett and Walking Stick Garrett (1994) provide a descriptive model of Native American identity and worldview. They offer numerous components of Native American ethnic values and perspectives, including the meaning of tribe, spirituality, harmony, balance, and humor. For example, Native Americans who hold strong cultural identification are likely to honor and use elders as resources in their negotiation of life’s path. Ideally, within many Native American tribes individuals gain rather than decline in usefulness to the community as they age and develop a complex wisdom to be shared with members of the tribe.
Her first three statuses outline how a white individual progresses away from a racist frame before moving to the next three statuses where they discover a nonracist white identity. Helms’s model is helpful in outlining interracial exposure as a powerful trigger for the development of racial identity. Problematic in this model is Helms’s confusion of an individual’s development toward a nonracist frame with development of a racial identity. Her premise is that racial identity for whites is about their perceptions, feelings, and behaviors toward blacks rather than about the development and consciousness of an actual white racial identity.

Researchers are not consistent in their meaning, which makes these concepts particularly challenging to grasp. To add to the confusion, racial and ethnic identity “transcends traditional categories and has become a major topic in psychology, literature, theology, philosophy, and many other disciplines” (Harris, 1995, p. 2). The concept of racial identity, in particular, has been misunderstood and contested.
