Abstract
The strontium-90 content of the biota near Cape Thompson, Alaska, was related to environmental factors. In plants, perennials with persistent aerial parts had maximum and similar concentrations of strontium-90. The content of caribou muscle varied seasonally and was highest in winter when lichens were an important caribou food.

Abstract
The Arctic Health Research Center began housing studies in 1955, with the cooperation and major financial support of the Division of Indian Health. The program was begun in response to the critical health problems of Alaskan aborigines--in particular, high tuberculosis incidence and death rates. The expenditure of millions of dollars on tuberculosis treatment for a relatively small population clearly indicated the need for basic measures such as adequate housing. After an analysis of the technical problems relevant to housing construction in remote Alaskan villages, four experimental houses were designed and constructed in the field. Each was occupied by an Eskimo family; in return for rent-free occupancy, the householders maintained the house and kept temperature records. As a result of these studies and other technological developments and advances, the emphasis in the field of housing for Alaskan aborigines has now shifted from the technical to the administrative and legislative aspects. The next step toward better housing in remote Alaskan villages should be the development of a realistic program of financing and supervision.

Abstract
The prevalence of diagnosed diabetes was determined for 76% of the registered Indian and Inuit (Eskimo) population of Canada from case registers maintained by the federal agency responsible for Indian health services. A total of 5324 cases were ascertained. The age-sex adjusted rate varied among the Indians from a low of 0.8% in the Northwest Territories to a high of 8.7% in the Atlantic region. Among Inuit, the prevalence was 0.4%. Most cases occur in middle-aged or older individuals, with a higher prevalence among Indian (but not Inuit) females. An ecologic analysis was performed with the crude prevalence of individual communities regressed upon independent variables that included longitude, latitude, geographic isolation, culture area, and language family. Stepwise regressions were also carried out within the Algonkian, Athapaskan, and Eskimoan language families. For the national sample, composite language phylum-culture area predictors were used. The results in the national sample confirmed most findings in the individual language family analysis. Six predictors: latitude, Northeast-Algonkian, Northeast-Iroquoian, Subarctic-Algonkian, Plains-Siouan, and Plains-Algonkian, ranked here in decreasing order of importance, explained 48.4% of the variation in diabetes prevalence. All the named groups had rates significantly greater than found in the reference group of Arctic-Eskimoans. We conclude that the distribution of diabetes among Canadian natives is determined by both genetic and environmental factors.

Abstract
A cluster is a mini-epidemic of a rare disease. Clusters may give clues to the etiology of disease, or may signal a hazardous exposure. Unfortunately, cluster investigations seldom are conclusive, for several reasons. Statistically significant clusters can occur by chance. The probability of finding chance cancer clusters is calculated for the 200 Alaska Native villages. The problem of selection bias is explained, and other limitations of epidemiology are described. A logical, stepwise protocol for investigating cancer clusters is presented.

Abstract
This paper describes the background and evolution of a Code of Research Ethics that was developed for a primary diabetes prevention project in the Native Mohawk community of Kahnawake in Canada. Embodying the principles of participatory research, this code was written by the researchers in conjunction with the community in the first year of the three-year project. The code ensures that the community is a full partner for the entire research process. For this project a Community Advisory Board is representative of the community.

Abstract
PURPOSE: This paper documents the problem of iron-deficiency anemia in the Inuit region of Nunavik, in Northern Quebec, particularly among pregnant women and infants. It also addresses the issue of Helicobacter pylori gastritis as a possible cause of anemia in this population. METHOD: Data on anemia in pregnancy are from routinely collected prenatal records. Data on anemia in infants are drawn from blood samples collected for a study on the impact of environmental contaminants. Helicobacter serologies were done on cord-blood specimens from 100 consecutive births screened for contaminant exposure. For comparison, serologies were done on a series of cord-blood specimens from 99 births in Southern Quebec. RESULTS: By term, 40% of pregnant women in Nunavik are anemic (Hgb

Abstract
Muskoxen (Ovibos moschatus) are increasingly subject to multiple new stressors associated with unprecedented climate change and increased anthropogenic activities across much of their range. Hair may provide a measurement of stress hormones (glucocorticoids) over periods of weeks to months. We developed a reliable method to quantify cortisol in the qiviut (wooly undercoat) of muskoxen using liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry. We then applied this technique to determine the natural variability in qiviut cortisol levels among 150 wild muskoxen, and to assess differences between sexes, seasons and years of collection. Qiviut samples were collected from the rump of adult muskoxen by subsistence and sport hunters in seven different locations in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories between 2013 and 2016. Results showed a high inter-individual variability in qiviut cortisol concentrations, with levels ranging from 3.5 to 48.9 pg/mg (median 11.7 pg/mg). Qiviut cortisol levels were significantly higher in males than females, and varied seasonally (summer levels were significantly lower than in fall and winter), and by year (levels significantly increased from 2013 to 2015). These differences may reflect distinct environmental conditions and the diverse stressors experienced, as well as physiological and/or behavioural characteristics. Quantification of qiviut cortisol may serve as a valuable tool for monitoring health and informing conservation and management efforts.
