We understand that people often feel pressured to fit in with others, and sometimes they can make decisions about drinking, smoking, and drugs that they wouldn’t have made without pressure from those around them.
Indigenous people in Alaska and around the globe have traditionally recognized many aspects that contribute to health, including spirituality, culture, community, physical health, and the mind.
Your spiritual self. This includes the spark of life, energy body, relationship with a higher power, connection to the world/others and world view.
You have the right to feel safe, respected and cared for in your relationships.

The Alaska Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) HIV/STD Prevention Program established iknowmine.org to provide Alaska Native and rural Alaska youth holistic health education and additional resources to promote healthy lifestyle choices.
The website distributes educational materials and resources, condoms, NARCAN® kits and safe medicine supplies and offers the I Want the Kit STI self-testing through a partnership with Johns Hopkins University. In the future, harm reduction kits and self-test HIV kits will also be available through the website.
The goal of the ANTHC HIV/STD Prevention Program is to create and disseminate materials, programs and other resources and to provide capacity and technical assistance to promote health and wellness. In our work, we recognize the intersection of the root causes of many health disparities, such historical and intergenerational trauma.
We also believe community involvement is integral to achieving wellness. ANTHC HIV/STD Prevention Program has many long-standing partnerships and continuously looks to connect with new partners aligned with our goals and values to better serve Alaska Native youth and those who support them.
