Permission was not sought for listing Jennifer Johnson in the Acknowledgments for this article, and as a result, her name should not have been listed. We issue this Correction to update the Acknowledgments section, which should read as below:

“We would like to acknowledge the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corporation and the Norton Sound Health Corporation, and all the people who so generously gave of their time and knowledge in each community, from the clinic to the tribal council to the city office to the stores to the schools.”

We also take this opportunity to provide clarification on some additional items:

The manuscript was reviewed and approved by the Norton Sound Health Corporation (Norton Sound Research Ethics Review Board), the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) Health Research Review Committee (HRRC) on behalf of the ANTHC Board of Directors, and the Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corporation Executive Board of Directors (and Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corporation Human Studies Committee).

It has come to the attention of the PLOS ONE Editors that a number of dietary instruments for Alaska Native populations have been published, but were not cited in the article, including:
