Abstract
It is necessary when providing an ethnohistorical overview of the NANA region of northwest Alaska to enlarge the discourse to include at least the entire aboriginal territory of the Iñupiaq-speaking people of Alaska, the whole area west and north of the Yukon River, encompassing 150,000 miles, from the northern cost of Norton Sound to the mouth of the Colville River. In fact, the relatively uniform Iñupiaq culture area with shared language and customs extends even further: to Siberia, the entire northern rim of Canada, and into Greenland. Although we try to limit the literature review to Alaska, and the NANA region more specifically, in some cases it is necessary to "borrow" from research dealing with other Iñupiaq-speaking groups in order to provide a fuller description. However, an assumption of cultural homogeneity is not wholly warranted, so specifying the "outside" group will be done to alert the reader when appropriate.

Abstract
Consistent with federal goals, the current goals of Alaska's health planning agencies have been to encourage prevention of health problems through an emphasis on health education, to allocate new technology within existing systems without unnecessary duplication, and to achieve levels of health care considered appropriate for community size and function. The challenge for health planning agencies in Alaska today is to develop an agenda for the next decade that will address the major changes anticipated in the state and assist in planning health services that are appropriate and responsive to those changes. In the short term, this requires not only a reformulation of goals but also a restructuring of the health planning agencies to address these new goals with the necessary expertise and with organizations that are streamlined to be efficient and responsive.

Abstract
We conducted gamma spectrometric analyses on more than 200 arctic marine mammal tissue samples. These samples were primarily provided by subsistence hunters from northern Alaska, with a smaller number of samples from the Resolute region in Canada. The majority of samples (>90%) had detectable levels of the anthropogenic radionuclide 137Cs, with a mean level observed in all samples of 0.67 Bq kg-1 dry weight ± 0.81 (SD). Converted to wet weight, the mean was 0.21 Bq kg-1 ± 0.19 SD. The median activity observed was 0.45 Bq kg-1 dry weight (0.18 Bq kg-1 wet weight) with a range from detection limits to 6.7 Bq kg-1 dry weight (1.1 Bq kg-1 wet weight). These findings confirm expectations that current anthropogenic gamma emitter burdens in marine mammals used in the North American Arctic as subsistence food resources are well below activities that would normally merit public health concern (~1000 Bq kg-1 wet weight). Some differences among species and tissues were observed. Beluga tissues had slightly higher mean burdens of 137Cs overall, and epidermis and muscle tissues in bowhead and beluga whales typically had higher burdens than other tissues analyzed. Low levels of the neutron activation product 108mAg (half-life 418 yr.), probably bioaccumulated from bomb fallout sources, were observed in 16 of 17 beluga livers analyzed, but were not found in any other tissues of beluga or in any other species sampled. A subset of 39 samples of various tissues was analyzed for the alpha and beta emitters 239,240Pu and 90Sr. Plutonium levels were near the threshold of detectability (~0.1 Bq kg-1 dry weight) in 6 of the 39 samples; all other samples had no detectable plutonium. A detectable level of 90Sr (10.3 ± 1.0 Bq kg-1 dry weight) was observed in only one of the 39 samples analyzed, a bowhead epidermis sample. Although the accumulation of 108mAg has not been previously reported in any marine mammal livers, all of our analytical measurements indicate that only very low levels of anthropogenic radioactivity are associated with marine mammals harvested and consumed in the North American Arctic.
