Abstract
By all accounts, the health of Alaska Natives is as poor as, if not worse than, the health of any other group in the United States, but many of the data that would normally be used in the health sciences to substantiate that perception are lacking. This report begins with a brief historical perspective of Alaska Native health and the health care system that has been established over the years to provide treatment and rehabilitative services to Alaska Natives, then describes indicators of current health problems among Alaska Natives, and concludes with recommendations for a community-oriented response to the health needs of Alaska Natives.
