Description

This video resource aims to educate Aboriginal people in East Arnhem Land about the history and traditions of tobacco use and the health risks of smoking on their people and culture. It was created to address the high rates of smoking amongst the Yolŋgu of East Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory and brings together new knowledge in health communications and behavioural concepts, underpinned by an ethnographic understanding of the Yolŋgu people.

The documentary showcases the cultural position Yolŋgu people take towards tobacco and the role of the health workforce.
