Traditional Tobacco Brings Us Together, Commercial Tobacco Tears Us Apart

As Native Americans, traditional tobacco is sacred to us. It is natural and spiritual; we use it in prayer and to show honor and respect.

Commercial Tobacco is chemical, mass-produced and easily abused. Commercial tobacco companies target Native Americans – including our young people – by exploiting our use of traditional tobacco to sell more of their deadly and addictive product.
