Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

For ten days in 1977 Paul John, then 48 years old, spoke to Yup'ik students at Nelson Island High School about their present and future; about his own experiences and those of his father and grandfather, who had lived in the pre-missionary days of the shamans; about relationships between humans and animals; and about other themes of traditional tales he had heard growing up. Translator and educator Shield and anthropologist Fienup-Riordan present the stories in the original with facing pages of English translation. They provide notes and a bibliography, but no index. The cover calls him Yup'ik Eskimo elder; the title page calls him Yup'ik elder; and the CiP is content with Paul John.
