Resources and Tools

The Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) has released the Healthy Native Families: Preventing Violence At All Ages bulletin.  This bulletin is the first time that data on domestic and sexual violence affecting Alaska Native people of all ages is brought together in one place.  Beginning with pregnancy, this bulletin takes us through the major stages of life, sharing the consequences of violence, how many people are affected, and Alaska-specific resources.

The National Congress of American Indians Policy Research Center and Montana State University’s Center for Native Health Partnerships have produced a new resource: Walk Sofltly and Listen Carefully: Building Research Relationships with Tribal Communities.  This new resource was developed with insights from those involved with tribal research in Montana and elsewhere.

Increasingly, tribal leaders acknowledge that research is a key tool of tribal sovereignty in providing data and information to guide community planning, cross-community coordination, and program and policy development.  Efforts to address longstanding issues, such as health disparities for American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN), have increasingly used partnership research approaches.  This document seeks to strengthen these partnerships by providing insight about how culture, sovereignty, and experience matter in research with Native communities.
