PIRE Publication - Research with tribal communities and peoples:  Progress, challenges and looking to the future

We are pleased to bring you nine original research manuscripts that address such topics as mental health and cultural connectedness, the mentoring of Native youth, sexual health curricula targeting Native youth, stress among Native women, smoking behaviors on and off Tribal lands, and patient navigator programs for Natives with cancer. These studies employ both qualitative and quantitative methods that are designed to reveal, understand, and promote the health and well-being of Native adults and youth. In addition, we have included a literature review of protective factors and health among Native American youth and a brief report on the development of a child safety curriculum targeting Native American families.
