- Project Title: Keep it Sacred
- Program Representative Interviewed: Joshua Hudson, Program Manager
- Location: Sault Sainte Marie, MI
Program Overview: The National Native Network (NNN) is a multifaceted network of
tribal organizations that offers resources and technical assistance to tribal communities that are
implementing tobacco and cancer prevention and control activities. NNN focuses on decreasing the use
of commercial tobacco use among American Indian/Alaska Native populations while acknowledging the
importance of the sacred or traditional use of tobacco in many tribal communities.
NNN is jointly funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Office on Smoking and Health and their Division of Cancer Prevention and Control. It is administered by the Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan. The California Rural Indian Health Board, the Great Plains Tribal Chairmen's Health Board, and the Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium are also represented on NNN's board of directors.
