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
The integrity of Indigenous Peoples' food systems is intimately connected to the overall health of the environment. Recent declines in many aspects of environmental quality, from loss of biodiversity to environmental contamination, have combined with social, economic, political and cultural factors to threaten the health and well-being of Indigenous Peoples, and ultimately of people everywhere. This has affected the quality of indigenous food, restricted its availability or curtailed access to it. All of the global case studies of Indigenous Peoples in the Indigenous Peoples' Food Systems for Health Program indicate concerns over environmental degradation as a major aspect of Indigenous Peoples' declining use of their indigenous food. Interconnected concerns include biodiversity loss of wild species and of cultivated species and varieties; hydroelectric dams and their impacts on fish and other foods; contamination of water and food from a host of chemical, radioactive and biological pollutants; and climate change, with its accompanying uncertainties and instabilities regarding food systems. Reconnecting Indigenous Peoples with their traditional territories, and reversing some of the restrictive regulations against Indigenous Peoples' historical hunting and plant harvesting practices may help to restore and maintain traditional resources. More cooperative arrangements for co-management of habitats and resources should be instated. Collaborative research is recommended, such as that reflected in this volume in which environmental and other relationships among Indigenous Peoples' cultures, lands and resource stewardship are complemented with supporting work by academic partners. Ultimately, this will help to maintain and strengthen the resilience of ecosystems and cultural systems, including diverse and healthy food systems.

Abstract
The First Nations Gwich'in community of Tetlit Zheh in the Northwest Territories of Canada has been undergoing a nutrition transition. Studies conducted in the mid-1990s indicated that the majority of the Gwich'in diet consisted of store-bought (market) food, a high proportion of which was calorie-rich but nutrient-poor. As part of the Indigenous Peoples' Food Systems for Health Program, Tetlit Zheh agreed to participate in activities to increase the consumption of traditional (local) food and healthier market food. Pre-intervention assessment was carried out in winter (February to March) 2006 among youth aged ten to 15 years and young women aged 20 to 40 years. Compared with the overall Canadian population, data indicated a similar proportion of overweight/obese youth, but a greater proportion of overweight/obese women. Compared with overall Canadian youth, Tetlit Zheh youth spent similar amounts of their leisure time with television or computers. The majority of women were assessed as moderately active, and youth reported having participated in a wide range of physical activities throughout the year. The most important traditional food species consumed by youth and women were caribou, moose and whitefish. The majority of both youth and women consumed at least one traditional food item regularly. Post-intervention activity assessments were not conducted because external forces precluded the documentation of behaviour and food consumption change. Climate change and other factors that reduced access to traditional food species, and a sharp increase in market food and fuel prices (2008) were important challenges.

Abstract
The ongoing nutrition transition in the Canadian Arctic is resulting in an epidemiologic transition towards the emergence of obesity and obesity-related chronic diseases. In response, the community of Pangnirtung in the Baffin Region of Nunavut, Canada, in partnership with the Centre for Indigenous Peoples' Nutrition and Environment, developed a community health promotion project in two phases. The first phase involved collecting health behavior data from adults (2005) and youth (2006), and recording and transcribing elders??? stories on the value of traditional food, including plants and remedies (2006 to 2007). In the second phase, the health behaviour survey data and storytelling were used to help develop an innovative pilot intervention in the community (2008 onwards). The intervention aimed to increase knowledge about traditional food and nutrition and improve nutritional health behaviours through the age-old Inuit tradition of storytelling. It targeted youth and young adults because of community members' concerns that youth were consuming more high-sugar drinks and "junk food" and less traditional food than older adults in the community. The youth survey found that youth had consumed an average of 1.4 litres of sweet drinks a day, including two cans of pop, over the previous month. It also found that only five traditional food species had been consumed by more than 80 percent of the youth over the previous year, and that youth had a strong preference for caribou meat, with 98.7 percent of them consuming caribou in the past year, at an average of 87.2 g per day among consumers. No other traditional food was consumed to the same degree. Elders' stories were incorporated into a DVD promoting knowledge and appreciation of a wide range of traditional foods. The stories were also incorporated with modern nutritional health advice for youth radio drama programmes aimed at reducing the high consumption of pop in the community. The DVD and radio programmes have already been pilot tested for effectiveness, cultural relevance and acceptability, and a broader community-wide evaluation of the community radio???s nutritional health promotion is currently taking place. In addition, elders' storytelling revealed elders' perceptions of climate change and its impacts on local flora and fauna, and their resulting concerns for the sustainability of subsistence food species. With climate change now outpacing projections, and potentially threatening favoured subsistence species, elders' storytelling can be a means of building youths' awareness and appreciation of the full range of traditional food available and increasing the diversity of traditional foods consumed. Elders' storytelling also provides opportunities for understanding changes in a historical context and, when combined with modern-day nutrition issues and modern media, may be a means of reaching youth, building social cohesion and promoting Inuit resiliency in a time of rapid climate change and uncertain food security.

Abstract
The Arctic has profound significance for climate and functioning of ecosystems around the globe. The region is particularly vulnerable and prone to rapid change. Increasing air and ocean temperatures, thawing permafrost, loss of sea ice, and shifts in ecosystems are evidence of widespread and dramatic ongoing change. As a result, critical environmental, economic, and national security issues are emerging, many of which have significant impacts for human lives, livelihoods, and coastal communities. Though NOAA has numerous and diverse capabilities that support these emerging issues, a strategic approach that leverages NOAA's existing priorities and strengths, as well as those of our national andinternational partners, is needed. This document provides a high-level framework and six strategic goals to address NOAA's highest priorities in the region. It is based upon assumptions that the region will: (1) continue to experience dramatic change, (2) become more accessible to human activities, and (3) be a focus of increasing global strategic interest.NOAA envisions an Arctic where decisions and actions related to conservation, management, and use are based on sound science and support healthy, productive, and resilient communities and ecosystems.The agency seeks a future where the global implications of Arctic change are better understood and predicted.

Abstract
From Introduction: This report represents a significant first-step to synthesize environmental information and to use that information to inform others about future conditions and potential outcomes in the BCB region for people and their communities. As such, many scientific uncertainties were identified and information needs noted as they pertain to climate change adaptation planning. Human needs and considerations tend to be considered holistically throughout. This is somewhat novel, especially given that multiple nations (USA, Canada, and Russia) and governance structures are involved. There is a message throughout that ecosystem-level information is a necessary component for understanding climate effects and their interactions, including changing conditions far-removed from the BCB region. The latter includes environmental effects or changes in the marketplace due to globalization. There is strong agreement throughout the report that continuing subsistence activities will be a critical element of food security despite local participation in the cash economy. Subsistence lifestyles and resources must be protected through effective management across the entire BCB region. Within the planning dimension, scenarios could be more effectively employed to guide these strategies by applying the information assembled in this report.

Abstract
Evidence of nutrition and epidemiologic transition in Inuit communities prompted a case study where traditional knowledge and traditional food is used as a basis for a community health-promotion effort to help improve overall diet quality including healthy market food choices. The current Inuit diet in the Baffin community involves a mix of traditional and market food. Caribou was the most commonly consumed traditional food item. Overall, 41 percent of energy was obtained from traditional food among 62 percent of respondents reporting traditional food consumption within the past 24 hours in the community health screening. Simultaneously, 58 percent of adults reported consuming an average of two cans of carbonated beverages in the past day, amounting to 10 percent of energy intake. Furthermore, the percent of n-3 fatty acids in plasma as a marker of traditional food consumption was inversely related to the percent of transfat in plasma as a marker of unhealthy market food choices (Spearman rho = -.44, p-value =.01). The data illustrate that traditional food is replaced by unhealthy market food choices.
A high prevalence of metabolic syndrome was observed (34 percent of 47 non-diabetic participants) using the new International Diabetes Federation criteria. Further, food insecurity was commonly reported, with 48 percent indicating that it was true or sometimes true that they “eat less or skip a meal because there isn’t enough money to buy food”; and 28 percent indicating “yes” to “in the last month there was not enough to eat in your house”. Fortunately, nearly all respondents (82 percent) indicated that friends and relatives shared their traditional food. The data illustrate that costs of market food items need to be considered in health promotion campaigns, and that traditional food promotion and sharing networks can help mitigate the rapid acculturation and transitions being observed. Finally, using traditional knowledge of indigenous food systems may be an effective way to promote healthy market food choices in an effort to prevent the adverse effects of acculturation.
