DISCRIPTION:  Second-hand smoke exposure has been shown to be a
significant cause of premature morbidity and mortality, and is an
important health risk that should be assessed by healthcare providers.
While many states and communities have implemented smoke-free policies,
those policies do not apply to tribal lands.  Our research findings have
relevance to clinicians who treat American Indian and Alaska Native
populations because it helps to characterize why smoke-free policies have
not been implemented in tribal lands.
OUTCOMES/OBJECTIVES:

1.      Distinguish the differences between ceremonial tobacco vs
commercial tobacco and their relations to smoke-free policies on Tribal
lands.

2.      List factors that impede and promote the passage of smoke-free
policies on Tribal lands.
