Reading Voices, Dan Dha Ts'edenintth'e: Oral and Written Interpretations of the Yukon's Past Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In the Yukon indigenous and colonial cultures persist with extraordinary vigor side by side. Reading Voices is a book about oral and written traditions in such a world. Key themes and episodes in recent Yukon history — the coming of Europeans, the fur trade and the gold rush — are examined from both oral and written points of view. So are Native and colonial traditions about the nature and origins of human beings and the world. Many indigenous and imported place names are examined for the light they shed on attitudes toward the land and knowledge of its resources. Stories by Native elders are quoted extensively and contrasted with written accounts of the same events.
