Native Center for Alcohol Research and Education
Our mission is to optimize alcohol intervention research for public health in general and our Native community partners in particular. We accomplish this goal by collaboratively engaging with Research Project teams and the Pilot Projects to conduct research that yields high-quality data while simultaneously meeting the unique needs of our partners.

The NCARE logo acknowledges the heritage of our communities and Community Advisory Board members participating in our projects based in Alaska, South Dakota, and Washington. Many Alaska Native and Plains tribes consider the wolf, in the center of the logo, a medicine being that is associated with courage, strength, loyalty, and success. The logo’s red, black, yellow, and white stars represent the Four Directions, acknowledging the ancestry of our Community Advisory Board members from Plains tribes. The logo’s background colors represent the Aurora Borealis as well as the night sky, which symbolizes looking to one’s ancestors for guidance.
