Smokefree Stories with Virginia Chosa

From Americans for Nonsmokers Rights Foundation

Smokefree Stories with Virginia Chosa highlights a Tribal elder’s perspective living in a multi-unit housing complex in Lac du Flambeau, Wisconsin.  The video takes place on the Lac du Flambeau Indian Reservation and refers to Tribal housing and Tribal Housing Authority.  Many sovereign Tribes receive funding from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development to provide housing to Tribal citizens living on reservations.  It is structured similar to Public Housing Authorities except Tribes are granted autonomy via the Native American Housing Assistance and Self Determination Act of 1996.
