Tikahtnu Forum Held

Tikahtnu ForumThe Tikahtnu Forum gathered for its quarterly meeting on Monday, Nov. 30, at CIRI’s Fireweed Business Center. Participants discussed the problem of alcohol and drug use in Alaska, particularly among young people, and brainstormed ideas to address the problem. A panel on substance abuse treatment and prevention strategies led the discussion, after which Forum participants moved to develop a committee to help unite individuals to tackle alcohol and substance abuse issues. The panel discussion was followed by updates on the 2015 Tribal Nations Conference and a discussion of the Forum’s goals and priorities for 2016.
