Sacred Traditional Tobacco for Healthy Native Communities: A Balanced Community for Health

In order to effectively change norms around harmful use of tobacco and improve health in American Indian communities, efforts need to be broad and comprehensive. A health in all policies approach can achieve impactful positive change to support strong and healthy future generations.

AICAF has developed versions of this resource that represent Northern Plains tribal communities as well as several Southwest tribal communities. Graphics representing Apache, Navajo, Pueblo and Ute tribes were created in partnership with the Southwest Tribal Tobacco Coalition and the Albuquerque Area Southwest Tribal Epidemiology Center.
