Tribal and Urban Indian Communities have considerable strengths after centuries of adversity, and, US Tribal members and their descendants suffer some of the worst health disparities in the US. In response to these inequities, Indigenous theories of etiology and change call for strength based, culture centered interventions in addition to adaptation of evidence-based approaches. Community Engaged Research (CEnR) offers one opportunity for this bi-directional learning.
