Each article in this journal describes not only a unique journey, it also describes an effort to build a homeland of some form or another. The authors refer to these journeys as the "loved experiences" of indigenous peoples. The idea then, that research is a lived experience that reflects the macrocosms and microcosms of indigenous well being, is encapsulated in each article. Each article, while documenting a unique focus, has at its core the critical responsibility to work within one's community to prepare people with the knowledge, skills, strategies, and values necessary to facilitate the optimal functioning of all endeavors.
