About this product
- DescriptionThe Yup'ik people of southwestern Alaska were some of the last Arctic peoples to come into contact with non-Natives, and as a result, Yup'ik language and many traditions remain vital into the twenty-first century. This work documents their qanruyutet (adages, words of wisdom, and oral instructions) regarding the proper living of life.
- Author BiographyAnn Fienup-Riordan is an independent scholar who has lived, worked, and taught in Alaska since 1973. Her many books include Hunting Tradition in a Changing World: Yup'ik Lives in Alaska Today and Yup'ik Elders at the Ethnologisches Museum Berlin: Fieldwork Turned on Its Head.
