The Alaska Native Tobacco Prevention Toolkit is for community grantees of the State of Alaska, Tobacco Prevention and Control Program and anyone who seeks to work with tribes in their journey to become tobacco-free.
This toolkit shares resources and ideas for working within a variety of settings in tribal communities, such as health clinics and schools. The purpose of this toolkit is to guid you through the process of how, as a grantee, you can assist a tribe, a tribal organization, or a tribal business in working towards implementation of evidence-based tobacco prevention strategies. The toolkit was prepared by the State of Alaska Tobacco Prevention and Control Program and the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) tobacco technical assistance team.
As you work with different tribal communities or tribal organizations, you will come to understand how each one is unique and may require more or less effort as they work to establish a smokefree and tobacco-free policy.
