Re: Query: History of Public Health Nutrition Work with Native American Populations

For something related to Canadian First Nations, take a look at Ian Mosby's work on forced nutritional research in residential schools. He received a great deal of attention for his research on this topic a few years ago. He might be someone to get in touch with:

Re: Query: History of Public Health Nutrition Work with Native American Populations

There are a couple useful but short chapters in _Food in the USA: A Reader_, ed. Carole. M. Counihan that consider change in Native American diets. I don't think they are super focused on nutrition, but each have decent bibliographies that might be useful as well. The book is from 2002; I'm hoping there is more recent work, but I don't know off the top of my head.

Query: History of Public Health Nutrition Work with Native American Populations

Does anyone know of work on the history of public health nutrition interventions or research among Native Americans? Failing that--I'm guessing there isn't much, if anything--are there any good contemporary studies of public health nutrition work among Native populations?

Thanks!
