From back cover : Food systems of Indigenous Peoples who retain connection to long-evolved cultures and patterns of living in local ecosystems present a treasure of knowledge that contributes to well-being and health, and can benefit all humankind. This book seeks to define and describe the diversity in food system use, nutrition and health in 12 rural case studies of Indigenous Peoples in different parts of the world as a window to global Indigenous Peoples’ circumstances. A procedure for documenting Indigenous Peoples’ food systems was developed by researchers working with the Centre for Indigenous Peoples’ Nutrition and Environment (CINE) at McGill University, Canada, and the FAO. The procedure was adapted and applied in case studies located in Canada, Japan, Peru, India, Nigeria, Colombia, Thailand, Kenya, and the Federated States of Micronesia. The collective intent of this documentation is to show the inherent strengths of the local traditional food systems, how people think about and use these foods, the influx of industrial and purchased food, and the circumstances of the nutrition transition in indigenous communities. This research was completed with both qualitative and quantitative methods by Indigenous Peoples and their academic partners in the context of the second International Decade of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, and the Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples adopted in 2007 by the General Assembly of the United Nations.

Abstract
Once, not too long ago and within the living memory of Native Alaskans, the Arctic was a pristine wilderness where POPs were never used and could not be detected in wildlife or humans. But the face of Alaska is changing, with increasing urbanization, industrialization, extractive resource activity, and commercial and social contacts with the global community. Accompanying these changes are concerns that the physical, climatic, and social aspects that make Alaska unique--particularly for the indigenous population--also make this region peculiarly prone to risks from global pollutants.

Abstract
This edition of the Alaska MCH Data Book will provide policy makers, public health professionals and health care providers with critical data on leading issues affecting women before, during and after pregnancy, and preschool age children. This book is unique in that it reports all analyses by Alaska Native status and, in some cases, by tribal health region. The goal of this book is to provide data that can be used in both tribal and non-tribal programs to design, implement, monitor, and evaluate programs. By focusing on Alaska Native status these data will be particularly helpful to health care staff and administrators in areas of rural Alaska that serve predominantly Alaska Native people. Please share with us how you have used the data published here. You may contact the PRAMS/CUBS staff by e-mail at mch-epi@alaska.gov or by phone at 1-888-269-3470.

Abstract
Representatives of 111 nations gathered in Stockholm in May 2001 to sign a legally binding convention to eliminate or reduce emissions of pesticides, insecticides, and other industrial combustion by-products. Long-range transport by air and water carries many of these pollutants to the circumpolar north, where they threaten the health and cultural survival of Inuit and other northern Indigenous peoples. This book tells the many-faceted scientific, policy, legal, and advocacy story that led to the Stockholm convention. Unique in its perspective, scope, and breadth, it reveals the key links among environmental and health science, international politics, advocacy, law, and global negotiations.

Abstract
The Arctic regions are inhabited by diverse populations, both indigenous and non-indigenous. 'Health Transitions in Arctic Populations' describes and explains changing health patterns in these areas, how particular patterns came about, and what can be done to improve the health of Arctic peoples. This collaborative study correlates changes in health status with major environmental, social, economic, and political changes in the Arctic. Together the contributors explore commonalities in the experiences of different peoples while recognizing their considerable diversity. The volume focuses on five Arctic regions--Greenland, Northern Canada, Alaska, Arctic Russia, and Northern Fennoscandia. A general overview of the geography, history, economy, population characteristics, health status, and health services of each region is provided and followed by discussion of specific indigenous populations, major health determinants and outcomes, and, finally, an integrative examination of what can be done to improve the health of circumpolar peoples. 'Health Transitions in Arctic Populations' offers both a detailed examination of key health issues in the North and a vision for the future well-being of Arctic inhabitants.

Abstract
This chapter on human health describes the levels of contaminants in humans and their effects on human health. It has not been written as an overview of the general health of the peoples of the Arctic. Rather, this chapter is an evaluation of the current knowledge of the consequences to Arctic peoples of environmental exposure to priority contaminants as defined in the AMAP mandate. Indirect health implications of climate change, oil pollution, and waste sites are treated in other chapters of this report.

Abstract
This chapter provides an introduction to the inhabitants of the Arctic. While there is insufficient space to explore the extent of information that exists in the written literature or in the oral traditions of indigenous cultures, the information given here is intended to help understand how contaminants may affect Arctic residents, and to encourage further investigation of these effects. The impacts that both contaminants and, more insidiously, the fear of contaminants have on, in particular, indigenous peoples and cultures demonstrate the need for effective communication and for preventing contamination that may lead to adverse effects on Arctic peoples.
