Developing an Indigenous Measure of Overall Health and Well-being: The Wicozani Instrument

Copyright
2019

A Native community developed the Wicozani Instrument, a 9-item self-report measure, to assess overall health and well-being from an Indigenous epistemology. The Wicozani Instrument measures mental, physical, and spiritual health and their importance to an individual's quality of life. The instrument's validity and reliability was examined through two studies, of which the results are discussed in this journal article.
