Abstract
Alaska Native and American Indian elders living in Alaska were surveyed to determine their recollections of traditional practices that were related to mental health and that took place in their youth or were told to them by parents, grandparents, or their elders. Professional people who work in mental health centers in rural Alaska were contacted by mail and telephone to obtain their knowledge of those mental health-related practices which had been used or are currently in use in counseling Alaska Native people. A review of the literature was conducted to discover accounts of traditional practices within Alaska, conducted within the past or present, within which overt or covert healing, particularly of a psychiatric nature, might be found or extrapolated. The review of the literature also served as the base for developing an informal historical sketch of some of the major events that have been particularly stressful in the lives of Alaska Natives over the past 100 years. A Western definition of mental health was modified to include the concept of spirit, and an attempt to explain its relevance to the mental health of Alaska Native people was made. The report indicated current trends toward reawakening Alaska Natives' traditional ceremonial and informal healing practices as part of a national movement also led by American Indians and supported by state and federal leaders responsible for public health and mental health.

Abstract
For more than a decade, the Alaska Federation of Natives (AFN) has sought to bring attention, understanding, and solutions to the problem of substance abuse and related violence among Alaska Natives. Progress has been made in some communities, but substance abuse continues to cause suffering, pain, death, and despair among many Alaska Native families. At the request of AFN, this report was undertaken to provide a basis for deriving effective, lasting solutions.

Abstract
The relative importance of traditional Greenlandic food items has diminished during the last decades. Today these account for 25% of the Greenland diet with a dominance of fish, seabirds, and marine mammals. This report synthesises the available information on concentrations of vitamins and minerals in the various food items that form the traditional Greenlandic diet. However, through this diet people in Greenland are also exposed to a high intake of heavy metals and organochlorines, due to a contamination of many of these food items. In combination with information on the concentration of contaminants, the information about vitamins and minerals will potentially make it possible to adjust the diet in Greenland, taking both nutrients and contaminants into account.

Abstract
The Rural, Remote, and Culturally Distinct (RRCD) Populations program of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services' Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) awarded funds for projects designed to improve the availability, accessibility, and effectiveness of services to individuals with culturally distinct characteristics who reside in rural, remote, and geographically isolated areas. The State of Alaska, the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation (YKHC) and CSAT signed a cooperative agreement ion 1993 for a special substance abuse treatment and recovery services project with YKHC as the primary provider. the purpose of the RRCD grant funding the project was to create a decentralized substance abuse treatment program in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta that would provide culturally appropriate outpatient recovery services to Alaska Natives in three villages. A detailed review of the literature on cross-cultural research issues regarding substance abuse program evaluations is provided in Appendix A. The project became known as the Chemical Misuse and Treatment Recovery Services (CMTRS) program. This was the first example of a collaborative effort between YKHC, the State of Alaska, and CSAT in joining forces to create a new way of providing services to culturally distinct populations in the Yukon-Kuskokwim area. The goal was for local village members, trained in substance abuse, to provide successful, village-based interventions and treatment services, making maximum use of local Alaska Native cultural traditions and language. CMTRS thus sought to incorporate the wisdom, beliefs , and knowledge of the indigenous Yup'ik and Cup'ik people. Over the course of five years, many innovative approaches in the program were developed to achieve this goal.
Notes
The CMTRS Evaluation is supported by a contract with the State of Alska, Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse. CMTRS is supported through CSAT RRCD Grant #5U94 T100883.
