The Great Plains Tribal Chairmen's Health Board has developed the Sacred Willow Book.

Sacred Willow Book

The Great Plains Tobacco Prevention Project developed the Sacred Willow Book to share stories about traditional tobacco.  Traditional tobacco is tobacco and/or other plant mixtures grown or harvested and used by American Indians and Alaska Natives for ceremonial or medicinal purposes.  There is a variety of “traditional tobacco” that the different tribes of the Great Plains use, in this book traditional tobacco is referred to as the plants that the Lakota/Dakota use as offering, smoking during prayer and ceremony.  The book also describes the burdens of commercial tobacco and information about the Great Plains Region.
