Description

This resource kit was produced by James Cook University as part of the Top End tobacco project, which aims to reduce tobacco smoking in Aboriginal communities in the Top End of the Northern Territory. The kit contains posters and stickers promoting smoking cessation written in the Indigenous languages of the area, including Burarra, Kriol and Walpiri. A book containing stories on tobacco - Short ones - gathered from Indigenous people from Arnhem Land was also developed.
