Do Alaska Native People Get Free Medical Care?* (and other frequently asked questions about Alaska Native issues and cultures) has been prepared by UAA/APU faculty and Anchorage community members as a companion to the Books of the Year. It provides responses to common questions about Alaska Native issues (the answer to the title question is “no; they paid in advance”) and includes recommended readings on a wide variety of topics including identity, language and culture; subsistence; ANCSA; the effects of colonialism; education and health care; and the future.
This book is now published by University of Alaska Press and will be available for purchase in July 2010.
