There’s a mythic quality to Alaska—most people picture the enormous size, the vast wilderness, and the extreme climate. However, the truth is that, in Southeast Alaska, the communities are close-knit, the land provides many resources, and people have lived here for thousands of years. In addition, it has a fairly moderate maritime climate and the sun still comes up, even on winter solstice!

The United States is home to 574 federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribes. These tribes can opt to receive healthcare from the Indian Health Service (IHS), an agency within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). In the early 2000s, the IHS lacked a robust software module in the Resource and Patient Management System for dental records. Many tribes were using paper records or other manual solutions to maintain dental records for their community members.

The cannabis industry in Indian Country is perhaps best described as in its infancy with only a handful of tribes engaged in cultivating, processing, and retail activities.  More than two-thirds of states have legalized cannabis and tribes in Nevada, Washington, and Oregon operate cannabis enterprises pursuant to state compacts while other states like Connecticut and New Mexico authorize the governor to enter into compacts.  Tribes in other regions of Indian Country have developed operations without a state compact.  Tribes may create various regulatory and taxation regimes under tribal law, with or without a state compact, that license tribally-owned vertically integrated operations or enable tribal members to establish individual cannabis enterprises.  A tribe could also establish a hybrid model where a tribally-owned retail enterprise purchases cannabis products from licensed tribal members. Finally, tribes also have the ability to acquire state licenses and operate entirely within state regulatory regimes.

Since its inception, the LIHTC Program has allowed for the creation of over 3.2 million housing units nationwide,2 of which just over 31,000 were within Indian Country as of 2019 (just .9%).3

While storytelling is a critical aspect of our tribal communities and of healing, sharing our stories of violence is never easy. I realize that in launching the StrongHearts Native Helpline, that’s exactly what we are asking survivors to do. Telling one’s story is an act of reciprocal trust, and opening up requires a level of vulnerability. That’s why for National Stalking Awareness Month, I am sharing mine.
