Tobacco Was Never Part of Inuit Culture

Tobacco Was Never Part of Inuit Culture

European whalers regularly travelled to the Arctic in the late 17th and 18th century. When they visited, they introduced tobacco to Inuit. At that time, no one knew how bad smoking and chewing tobacco was and the effect it has one’s health. But today we know tobacco use leads to illness and death.

We have to work together to take a stand against tobacco. We need to show that we were tobacco-free before and we can be tobacco-free again because Tobacco Has No Place Here.
