My current research focuses on resilience and protective factors in American Indian culture, spirituality and ceremony. The foundation of my research is based on the concept of Hózhó, a Diné (Navajo) Wellness philosophy. Future research will explore ways in which American Indian cultural wisdom (as found in culture, spiritual practices and ceremony) may be implemented to elevate the physical, psychological, spiritual and social health of American Indians.
