Introduction: Alcohol remains one of the most pressing public health concerns in many American Indian and Alaska Native communities (USCDC, 2008). As sovereign nations, American Indian and Alaska Native tribes have the ability to pass a wide range of laws to control alcohol (May, 1992), which may be an important component of more comprehensive prevention planning. This Knowledge Asset focuses on evidence about the potential impact of these policies.
