E ngā iwi taketake, he mihi tēnei ki a koutou,

Te Mauri Pimatisiwin the Journal of Indigenous Wellbeing is proud to announce the publication of the third Issue for 2021, a General Issue (Volume 6, Issue 3, December 2021). 2021 has been another challenging year for Indigenous People worldwide, with an increased focus on responding to COVID 19, ensuring the safety of our people, and enhancing our connection and wellbeing. This has meant binding to our traditional practices around wellbeing, applying our values and beliefs to new situations and challenges, and utilising new technologies.

The current issue presents a range of exceptional examples of indigenous approaches to wellbeing. It has a strong focus on Indigenous wellbeing practices and measurement; public health collaboration and use of technology; and child wellbeing and education. We are confident the exemplars in the current journal will create much reflection, discussion and learning across our indigenous communities.
