Editorial: Kenaitze Tribe provides beacon of hope and healing

"When the Kenaitze Indian Tribe broke ground on its new Dena’ina Wellness Center last week, Jaylene Peterson-Nyren shared a sentiment that got us thinking.

Peterson-Nyren, the tribe’s executive director, said the wellness center will do more than provide medical care to local Alaska Natives. The building will serve to elevate wellness of both mind and body to a priority, allow Natives to use their talents and resources, ensure they have a common safety net and allow them to share those resources with others.

That is the “our definition of prosperity,” she said."
