National Native Network is a national network of Tribes, tribal organizations and health programs working to decrease commercial tobacco use and cancer health disparities among American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) across the U.S. We offer technical assistance, culturally relevant resources, and a place to share up-to-date information and lessons learned, as part of a community of tribal and tribal-serving public health programs.
ClearWay MinnesotaSM supports Minnesota’s American Indian advocates in their work to advance smoke-free policies on tribal lands. American Indian Nations have an ancient and complicated relationship with tobacco. Traditionally, tobacco is viewed as a sacred medicine bestowed by the Creator, central to tribal culture, practices and ceremonies. But for generations, the commercial tobacco industry has corrupted Native tobacco practices, and has also marketed directly to American Indians by exploiting their images in advertisements. Today, smoking rates among American Indians in Minnesota are enormously high (59 percent compared to 14.4 percent among the general population), and tobacco-related diseases are the top killers in their communities.
