Tribe Takes Action to Protect Non-Smokers

Nunakauyak Traditional Council passed a Smokefree Tribal Workplace Resolution in the village of Toksook Bay on August 7, 2012.

The resolution was adopted as a concrete measure to protect the health and welfare of tribal members, employees

, and children from the harmful effects of second hand smoke exposure.

This resolution followed on the heels of the October 2011 AFN Resolution 11-51, where tribal delegates heavily supported statewide smokefree workplaces. The unanimous vote by the Nunakauyak Traditional Council showed their firm commitment to protect the health of all.
