Lead Awareness in Indian Country: Keeping our Children Healthy!

This curriculum is a robust set of educational tools that provide practical, on-the-ground, community-based resources to reduce childhood lead exposure in communities. The Curriculum creates a starting point to hold informed conversations within communities to teach parents and caregivers about lead. The Curriculum also empowers individuals to act within their own homes to protect their children and communities from potential lead exposure.

EPA designed the Curriculum with over 200 tribal partners to:

  • Raise awareness in tribal communities (and other interested communities) about childhood lead exposure;
  • Expand understanding of lead’s potential impacts on children’s health and cultural practices; and
  • Encourage actions that can be taken to reduce and/or prevent childhood lead exposure.
