Abstract
This thesis attempts to answer: 1) How has history and evolution shaped the relationship of Aleut and Eskimo populations? and 2) What is the relationship of Aleuts and Eskimos to other Native American populations? Questions are addressed using anthropometric measurements and classical genetic markers. Relethford- Blangero method was applied to athropometrics of the study populations. Results were compared to Nei’s genetic distance matrix of classical genetic markers. Multivariate analyses were used to determine relationships among Aleuts, Eskimos and other American Indians. This study shows a close phylogenetic relationship among Aleuts and Eskimos. Anthropometrics reveal a close relationship between Savoonga, Gambell and St. Paul due to shared European admixture. Despite shared population history, St. George did not cluster with the other Bering Sea natives in the PCA, NJT, or unscaled R-matrices; highlighting affects of genetic drift on St. George. A close relationship between Aleuts, Eskimos, Northwest, and Northeast Natives was evident.

Abstract
The Bristol Bay Area Health Corporation (BBAHC) was the first tribal organization in the United States to use a P.L. 93-638 contract to manage and operate an Indian Health Service Unit. BBAHC was formed on behalf of 32 village tribes in 1973 and began managing and operating Kanakanak Hospital and Bristol Bay Area Service Unit in 1980. Twenty years have passed since the corporation took on its mission to provide health care programs to Native and other residents of Bristol Bay.

Abstract
This review summarizes the published information on diabetes mellitus and gestational diabetes among Alaska Natives. The most recently published age-adjusted prevalence was 28.3/1000 in 1998. There is evidence of a steadily increasing prevalence, documented both by cross sectional screening studies and patient registry methods. The overall incidence rates in 1986-1998 of lower extremity amputation (6.1/1000) and renal replacement therapy (2.1/1000) appear to be lower than those in other Native American populations in the United States. Incidence of stroke and MI in 1986-1998 varied widely by ethnic group and gender with Eskimo women having the highest rate of stroke (19.6/1000), and Aleut men the highest rate of MI (14/1000). The overall mortality among diabetic Alaska Native people in 1986-1993 (43.2/1000) was somewhat lower than that in other US diabetic populations, with heart disease being the most common cause of death. A high rate of gestational diabetes (6.7%) was reported in one region in 1987-88, but this appeared to decline following nutritional education intervention. In screening studies, the prevalence of abnormal glucose tolerance has been found to be positively associated with body mass index and negatively associated with daily seal oil or salmon consumption and higher levels of physical activity. Observations on the prevalence and relationships among other factors in the insulin resistance syndrome are summarized. Suggestions for prevention of diabetes and further studies are presented.

Abstract
It is the opinion of most Alaskan consultants that many Native children need tonsillectomies and adenoidectomies to prevent otitis media, mastoiditis, and hearing loss. This study was designed to obtain an unbiased, statistical test of the validity of these clinical impressions and opinions. The survey was financed by the U.S. Children's Bureau and carried out mainly by consultants to the Washington State Department of Health and to the Alaska Department of Health.

Abstract
The distribution of the types of a genetic polymorphism in a given population is an objective of considerable anthropologic interest. Although the fact that two populations may have similar polymorphic ratios is not evidence of close relationship, it can be concluded that little intermixing could have occurred if these ratios are quite different. In practice, such information is useful in planning searches for genetic linkage, and it may also lead to uncovering unexpected origins of certain families. For these purposes, the proportions of types of two red cell enzymes--acidphosphatase and phosphoglucomutase--and of two serum factors--haptoglobins and group specific component (Gc)--were determined in four ethnic groups native to Alaska.

Abstract
A series of rubella epidemics occurred in Alaska in 1963-1964 in isolated Eskimo and Aleut communities in which the disease had been absent for at least 20 years. Details of one of these epidemicsappear elsewhere. In this communication, an attempt will be madeto analyze the epidemiological implications of these outbreaks. Several controversial concepts will be expressed concerning the infectiousness of rubella as opposed to measles and the problemof subclinical and second infections with rubella.
