Abstract
Indigenous Peoples globally are part of the nutrition transition. They may be among the most extreme for the extent of dietary change experienced in the last few decades. In this paper, we report survey data from 44 representative communities from 3 large cultural areas of the Canadian Arctic: the Yukon First Nations, Dene/Métis, and Inuit communities. Dietary change was represented in 2 ways: 1) considering the current proportion of traditional food (TF) in contrast to the precontact period (100% TF); and 2) the amount of TF consumed by older vs. younger generations. Total diet, TF, and BMI data from adults were investigated. On days when TF was consumed, there was significantly less (P 40 y old consistently consumed more (P or = 30 kg/m(2)) of Arctic adults exceeded all-Canadian rates. Measures to improve nutrient-dense market food (MF) availability and use are called for, as are ways to maintain or increase TF use.

Abstract
Series of videos intended to contribute to the evidence base used to make global policies to protect Indigenous Peoples' food resources and to promote good health. Here are two that relate to nutrition in the Arctic:
The Gwich'in and Their Traditional Foods
In the northern Northwest Territories of Canada within the Gwich'in Nation is the community of Tetlit Zheh. In this rural Arctic setting, the Gwich'in Traditional Food Project has actively promoted local wildlife foods and healthy market foods in many community programs for their cultural and health benefits.
The Inuit and Their Indigenous Foods
On Baffin Island, within the Nunavut Territory, the rural community of Pangnirtung uses traditional knowledge and country food to address emerging health patterns resulting from transition in nutrition and all facets of life.
