National Native Network

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail



CRIHB is working on a new tobacco surveillance and monitoring project in collaboration with the National Native Commercial Tobacco Abuse Prevention Network. CRIHB’s role in this partnership is gathering information about the types of commercial tobacco prevention and intervention services and programs that exist in Indian Country nationwide.

The National Native Commercial Tobacco Abuse Prevention Network, established in 2008, endeavors to create a collaborative of stakeholders within American Indian and Alaska Native communities. The mission of the Native Network is to provide a forum for tribes and tribal organizations to obtain and disseminate evidence-based and culturally appropriate information in order to identify and eliminate health disparities related to commercial tobacco abuse. 

The Native Network offers several services to tribes and AI/AN organizations to include: 

  • Providing the scientific knowledge and technical assistance that will allow the implementation of high quality interventions that are both culturally competent and science-based.
  • Collecting data to inform “Promising Practices” in Indian Country – a compilation of culturally appropriate interventions that have been scientifically evaluated and shown to be successful among AI/AN populations.
  • Providing expert guidance in implementing policy-from policy planning to enforcement.
  • Providing technical assistance that is informed by both science and cultural relevancy.
