This study contributes an Indigenous-based framework to minority stress process theory to study Mexican American health and well-being. The potental for a sense of connection to Indigeneity and group singing and drumming experiences in sweat lodges to act as a buffer to stress and to improve the well-being of Mexican Americans is examined. Implications for interventions to strengthen positive coping and health in Mexican Indigenous communities are also discussed.
