Reclaiming American Indian Women Leadership: Indigenous Pathway to Leadership  [PDF]
Margo Hill, Mary Ann Keogh Hoss
Open Journal of Leadership (OJL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojl.2018.73013
Abstract: There was no identified leadership model for American Indian women leaders. Through an exhaustive review of leadership styles it was identified that the Centered Leadership approach lends itself to the culture of American Indian Women. The components of the Centered Leadership approach include: utilizing personal strengths, managing energy, positive framing, relationship building, and collaborating with others to take advantage of opportunities. Based on the review of the literature and native women’s leadership styles, the concepts of the Centered Leadership Model were utilized to develop “Native Women Leadership: Indigenous Pathway”. Prior to European contact, native women held positions of leadership, shared in decision making and owned property. Today Native women leaders and managers are reclaiming their decision making authority to improve the lives of their nations. The Native Women Indigenous Pathway has not come without barriers and discrimination. The Centered Leadership approach assists in the examination of the American Indian woman’s pathway to decision making. Native women find themselves living in two worlds and must navigate expectations and responsibilities by switching between mainstream American and tribal values. How a native woman decides to negotiate these two worldviews is part of what creates her individual identity and her leadership style. A Native American Leadership Indigenous Pathway model is proposed.
"?Se mueve la niebla con nosotros?": personajes y vanguardia en María Luisa Bombal
Echenberg, Margo;
En-claves del pensamiento , 2010,
Abstract: upon being asked to lengthen her novel la amortajada to at least two hundred pages, maría luisa bombal opted not for a literal translation, but rather wrote the shrowded woman (1947). this article looks at the additions to the novel in english in relation to the evolution of the main character both in this novel and in la amortajada, a novel written in spanish and published by the prestigious editorial sur in buenos aires ten years earlier. bombal's prose in english in the added chapters of the novel contrasts with her lyrical style in spanish that skill-fully portrays both the desire and sense of lack suffered by the protagonist. as such, the english language novel is a more conventional work. moreover, the new chapters of the shrowded woman focus not on the protagonist but rather on secondary characters, rendering the romantic entanglements more complicated and verging on the melodramatic. the study of the new segments of the novel written in english proves them not only to be superfluous in terms of the development of the main character but in fact partly responsible for impoverishing the novel. this same conclusion, nevertheless, suggests just how bombal's prose in spanish is poised on the avant-guard.

Older Adults’ Explanatory Models of Colds and Flu  [PDF]
Margo-Lea Hurwicz, Margaret Rose
Health (Health) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/health.2015.79133
Abstract: Systematic data collection and analysis techniques were used in Los Angeles to discover older adults’ shared explanatory models (EM) of the causes, prevention, symptoms, treatment and consequences of late life illnesses, including influenza and the common cold. Recorded narratives also were analyzed to illustrate similarities and differences in shared cultural knowledge of these illnesses. Consensus analyses results suggest that shared EM of influenza and the common cold are similar. Participants identified both illnesses as contagious, caused or exacerbated by bad weather, but not the result of lifestyle, aging or heredity. Other shared cultural knowledge includes that both illnesses can be treated with home remedies, over-the-counter medications and medical care; both illnesses cause discomfort but are not serious, life-threatening or disabling. Despite the similarities and the apparent merging of the two illnesses in popular thought, many older adults do distinguish them, based on symptom patterns and severity, as revealed in their transcribed narratives. Consistent with other studies, participants attribute gastrointestinal symptoms to influenza but not to colds. They do not understand the potential role of lifestyle, age and chronic conditions in etiology and onset, and they are not concerned with their vulnerability to the potential sequelae of influenza. Public health education explaining the effects of lifestyle on susceptibility and vulnerability to the flu, how to distinguish and appropriately treat colds and the flu, and when to contact physicians, is recommended for older adults. Mixed method studies can prove useful at the planning stages of such interventions.
Older Adults’ Explanatory Models of High Blood Pressure  [PDF]
Margo-Lea Hurwicz, Margaret Rose
Health (Health) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/health.2016.87072
Abstract: Shared Explanatory Models (EM) of High Blood Pressure (HBP)/Hypertension (HTN) were explored using systematic data collection and analysis methods from cognitive anthropology. Older adults who were members of a Medicare HMO in Los Angeles were asked to list all the illnesses experienced by older adults that they could recall, and those listing HBP or HTN were asked to further list and discuss its symptoms, causes, treatments and prevention. Responses were tape recorded, transcribed, and analyzed to develop a systematic “sentence completion by card sort” follow-up procedure. Consensus Analysis (CA) of the systematically collected data identified shared EM for HBP/HTN. The model presented here is similar to models of HBP/HTN described by researchers working with patients from different regions and different ethnic groups, suggesting that there is a widely shared lay or popular model for this disease. Stress, lifestyle (diet, exercise, weight, and substance use), heredity and aging are thought to be the major causes of HBP/HTN. Physicians are thought to be the appropriate source of care, as HTN/HBP is serious, life threatening, and potentially disabling. The study of cultural understandings and shared EM of disease has direct relevance for clinical practice and public health education. For a disease such as HTN/HBP, knowing where and how such explanations differ systematically between patients and clinicians, and what impact this may have on patterns of adherence to prescribed treatment is a crucial area of concern.
