Abstract
This thesis is an exploratory study that examines questions pertaining to human sexual behavior and child sexual abuse among one Alaska Native group.The goal of the study was to contribute to our understanding of 1) how sexual abuse was viewed historically from within one particular cultural group; 2) how sexual behavior and sexual abuse is perceived by the elders in that cultural group at the present time: and 3) how- from a within-culture perspective- the negative consequences related to sexual abuse might best be addressed.
