Abstract
This paper illustrates how a team consisting of a psychiatrist, a sociologist, and a clinical psychologist working as consultants to a federal agency was able to develop a program which applied behavioral science theory and methods to the problem of reducing the stress of urban migration. The Seattle Orientation Center was conceived by the Bureau of Indian Affairs as a way station for Alaskan Natives en route to the large cities in the lower 48 states.

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.
