Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document The purpose of this dissertation was 'to examine the perceptions of members of the community to a given set of issues and to the agencies involved in these issues' (p. 2). Five issues of primary concern to the village were examined: work, education, health, child welfare, and aggression. A history of Unalaska Island from aboriginal times to the present is included. This historical summary concentrates on how the issues the author plans to discuss were handled in earlier times. The summary draws largely on sources already in the Aleut file and is indexed for only HISTORY (175). As a social work dissertation, the source is oriented toward the human problems of the community and suggestions for their solution, rather than a purely descriptive point of view. Each chapter ends with, and the conclusion consists of policy recommendations. Suggestions for reorganizing the village for greater native control are also included in the conclusion. These have been zeroed out but may be found in category 116. The author only lived in Unalaska for two months, but is a resident of the Aleutian area and hence was able to have intermittent contacts with a number of Unalaskans over the following six months.
