We are thrilled to share the launch of a new Tribal Principles website. The new website offers culturally relevant, Indigenous-centered guidance for Tribes to consider when creating spending plans for the use of Tribal opioid settlements.This work represents a parallel effort to broad state/national settlement guidance led at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and available at https://opioidprinciples.jhsph.edu/the-principles/
Tribal Principles represents over a year of intensive work led by Andrea Medley (Haida Nation), Research Associate at the Center for Indigenous Health and collaborators at the University of Washington/7 Directions, with funding from the Bloomberg Overdose Prevention Initiative. Andrea worked very closely with a national advisory council to ensure diverse viewpoints, cultures, experiences, and areas of expertise were represented in this work. We congratulate Andrea for her leadership, compassion, and persistence in this important work.
