Starting November 26, tobacco companies must run court-ordered TV and newspaper ads telling the truth about the dangers of smoking and secondhand smoke. It’s a good step, but we also need strong corrective action by elected officials at all levels to win the fight against tobacco once and for all. tfk.org/TobaccoRacketeers

A federal court found tobacco companies lied about the dangers of smoking and secondhand smoke – and how they designed cigarettes to make them more addictive. Now the companies must run court-ordered TV and newspaper ads – called corrective statements – that tell the truth. Learn more: tfk.org/TobaccoRacketeers

Walking in Balance The Medicine Wheel is an interconnected system of teachings relating to the seasons, directions, elements, colors and the cycle of life. It speaks of the need for balance, harmony and respect. It is an ancient system of traditional indigenous knowledge that many tribal peoples share under many different names. Experience continues to be a fundamental principle of the Anishinaabe learning processes.” (Ref:) Mary R. Favorite, 2004 White Earth Reservation walking in balance The challenge of diabetes, and chronic illness are complex phenomenon that impact a wide cross section of populations across North America. Native American populations are especially vulnerable. Mind-body medicine perspectives are increasingly being appropriated to improve health. This project links integrated mind-body interventions with indigenous (Anishinaabe) teachings. Based upon KBIC’s ongoing health programs and in partnership with KBIC’s Health Systems, The Medicine Wheel Project will work with volunteers diagnosed with Type II diabetes from the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community with an intention to increase wellness and improve emotional health. Traditional cultural practices and tribal elders will be invited to help frame and direct the project over the nine months of the Projects duration. Over the course of the Medicine Wheel Project, twenty to twenty-four volunteers, including KBIC Health System staff, will implement a series of personal practices to improve measures of well-being. Nine consultations will be carried out with each Project participant. Small groups (cohorts of 4 individuals) will be designed and available when needed, for ongoing support and communication.
