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 concentration of radioactive fallout within various components of arctic ecosystems has been extensively studied during recent years as a consequence of the transmission in significant amounts of certain radionuclides to human populations. Major research and radiological health emphasis has focused on the two long-lived fallout components, strontium 90 (90Sr) and cesium 137 (137Cs). Long physical half-lives of 28 and 30 years, respectively, and other properties make them available over extended periods of time and provide the opportunity to study cycling properties in biologic systems. Although fallout deposition at 60 to 70° North latitude is but one-fourth to one-half that of the temperate regions, the lichen-caribou (reindeer)-man food chain consistently yields high concentrations of most fallout radionuclides in man.
