Aims & Scope
In response to community requests for the return of information regarding research conducted among their people the Kariwhahawi (Carrying the Word) Institute (KI) has been created. The mission of the KI is to centralize access to educational, health, psychological and environmental research, to disseminate research conducted in Indian Country, to provide a community accessible outlet for Indigenous research, to provide a comprehensive data base of Indigenous research available to the professional and scientific community and to assist in training of Native researchers.
The Journal of Indigenous Research is designed to provide research data in a way that is understandable to the average person and will also specifically indicate an application of the material presented. These 1500-2000 word articles will be written in non-technical language, state some outcome of the research, explain the importance of the outcome for Native American, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian, Maori people, and will be from the areas of the environment, public health, psychology, general health or education.
