Summary: Cancer is currently the leading cause of death among Alaska Native people. This study will engage the Alaska Native community in visually and verbally exploring and documenting local perspectives about cancer and its interrelationship with Native values. It will then evaluate community agreement on which Alaska Native values can become tools for addressing priority stressors, and how this will be accomplished.
