Abstract
Standard incidence ratios for cancers that occurred during 1969--73 among Alaskan Natives (Indians and Eskimo-Aleuts) were reported. Although data suggested that the overall rate of cancer in this population was close to that of U.S. whites, differences existed for certain cancer sites. Thus increased risks in Alaskan Natives were observed for nasopharyngeal, salivary gland, kidney, and gallbladder and liver cancers. Conversely, decreased risks were found for cancers of the lung, larynx, bladder, prostate gland, breast, and corpus uterus and for melanoma and lymphoma.

Abstract
1. Rates for lung cancer in Canadian Inuit are high and increasing for both men and women; in fact they are the highest reported rates for lung cancer among any Inuit population. 2. Cervical cancer in Canadian Inuit are high but rates appear to be stable, unlike the rapidly increasing trend reported in both Alaska and Greenland. 3. Rates for traditional Inuit cancers such as those of the nasopharynx and salivary gland do not appear to be declining in Canadian Inuit. 4. Rates for colorectal cancer in Canadian Inuit are similar to those expected for the Canadian population as a whole and do not appear to be increasing. 5. Finally, cancers traditionally reported to be rare in Inuit are still rare in the Canadian Inuit population; these include breast, prostate, bladder, and endometrial cancer. Cancer is a disease which can be controlled through prevention, early detection or treatment. The following future directions arising from this work reflect this paradigm...

Abstract
Malignant lymphoepithelial lesion (MLEL) is a rare neoplasm of the salivary gland which has an exceptionally high incidence in the Eskimo. Eighty-four cases have been previously reported. Seven additional cases in six Eskimos and one Filipino patient are reported in this paper. The etiology, treatment and prognosis of these lesions is then discussed.

Abstract
A case of malignant lymphoepithelial lesion (MLEL) occurring in the submandibular salivary gland of an Eskimo woman is presented. These unusual carcinomas have a striking frequency in Eskimos but are usually in the parotid gland. Cytology of fine-needle aspirated material demonstrated the cell type found by histologic examination. Electron microscopy confirmed a squamous differentiation of the malignant cells.
