Abstract
Before contact, the indigenous people of Alaska depended on knowledge of anatomy, herbal medicine, and other healing practices for health maintenance. With contact, a social system that had been ideally suited to its purpose was destroyed and replaced by another, ill-suited to the temperament as well as to the social, physiological, and psychological needs of the Alaskan Native.
