Abstract: An ``almost free'' $ {Z_{{2^k}}}$ action on a manifold is one in which only the included $ {Z_2}$ may possibly fix points of the manifold. For k = 2, these are the stationary-point free actions. It is shown that almost free $ {Z_{{2^k}}}$ bordism is generated by three subalgebras: the extension from $ {Z_2}$ actions, a coset of $ {Z_2}$ extensions being the restrictions of circle actions and a certain ideal of elements which annihilate the whole ring. The additive structure is determined. Free $ {Z_{{2^k}}}$ bordism is shown to split as an algebra. It is shown that the kernel of the extension homomorphism from $ {Z_2}$ to $ {Z_{{2^k}}}$ bordism is equal to the image of the corresponding restriction homomorphism.
