Abstract
The purpose of this retrospective is to inform the water and sanitation industry and the general public about technologies deployed in rural Alaskan villages between ~1970 and 2005. We indicate, per interviewee input, why the majority failed on a technical level or failed to provide adequate water on an as-used basis to improve health outcomes. This retrospective will supplement prior, and often meager, documentation of unsuccessful approaches to water and sanitation in Alaska, as both a cautionary tale and as a benchmark against which progress can be made.

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
The study of tumors in primitive groups of people at times discloses peculiarities of incidence. Further study of these peculiarities may add a little to the general understanding of tumors. The incidence and variety of malignant tumors among Eskimos are largely unknown. Fog-Poulsen was the first to report a malignant tumor in an Eskimo in 1949. Brown et a1. gave the second report of a malignant tumor in an Eskimo in 1952. Gottmanns has recently reported autopsies on 57 AlaskanEskimos that revealed 11 malignant tumors. In the present paper, 76 malignant tumors are reported that were diagnosed in AlaskanEskimos during the first 6 years of operation of the Alaskan Native Hospital in Anchorage.
