Abstract
This book is a comprehensive collection of traditional plant knowledge gathered from literature sources. It is not intended to be a guide book or "how-to" for using medicinal plants. It is, however, designed to be a tool for referencing traditional Alaska Native uses of healing with plants and provides baseline data for communities wishing to further enhance their knowledge of cultural plant usage.

Abstract
The 5,200-year-old mummy of the so-called "Iceman" found in the Tyrolean Alps in September 1991 has not only provided unique information about the European Stone Age, but has also supported disciplines of glaciology and paleoclimatology, contributed to medical history, age-at-death determination, and plastic surgery. The Iceman is the oldest known case of medical tattooing. Since the body is unique, new noninvasive methods had to be developed to investigate it. Stereolithographic skull models were produced to study the skull. Age determination was partly based on computer tomography. These methods may even be used for present or future medical or forensic practice. Furthermore, a collection of identified skulls from a charnel house in Austria, dating from about 1780 AD to 1990 AD, has been used for testing and developing osteological methods, though the inclusion of the skulls in the charnel house is formally classified a second burial. These skulls have been studied by permission from the local Catholic church. Careful respect for the ancestors is crucial in both these and other cases. In return, access to the remains of ancestors provides information which may shed light upon the past, the present, and even help survival in the future.

Abstract
There is increasing interest in Native traditional healers and the possibility of their working in some form of relationship with the allopathic medical system. It represents a resurgence of effort in an area of great potential benefit to the Native community, but is rife with issues that could destroy the effort at any number of stages in the process. Issues related to professional and institutional responsibility, the power of medicalization, physical and philosophical interactions of the systems of healing, measures of effectiveness, issues of reimbursement, and many more must be dealt with in an intentional and thorough manner if the process is to be successful.

Abstract
This paper is based on interviews with two individuals who talked about their experiences with a condition known as "twisted mouth." While the biomedical label of Bell's palsy is often applied to such cases, the appropriateness of this label is not explored here. Rather, the focus is on how Nehinaw (Cree) cultural understandings frame the experience of and response to illness, even when biomedical practitioners were consulted. The interviews were carried out by the first author using the Nehinaw language as much as possible. Subtle linguistic clues within the interviews point to the pervasiveness of Nehinaw cultural understandings.

Abstract
The delivery of medical and health-related services tends to be compartmentalized and fragmented. If the goal is health and if an important part in achieving that goal is increasing the ability of the person, family, and community to care for themselves while providing cost-effective care, then it is imperative to integrate efforts across community and primary care arenas. The Southcentral Foundation is an Alaska Native organization focused on the delivery of community and primary care activities that continues to work at the challenges of integration and coordination. This paper discusses some of the efforts to date and hopes for the future.
