Yup'ik Elders at the Ethnologisches Museum Berlin: Fieldwork Turned on Its Headby Ann Fienup-riordan
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
In September 1997, eight Yup'ik elders travelled from their home in Alaska to spend three weeks at Berlin's ethnology museum, where they examined and commented on the nearly 2000 objects collected by the museum in the Arctic in the 19th century. This oversized volume (it's 9.25x12.25<">) is heavily illustrated with color plates of the objects and the visiting elders handling and discussing them. The Museum's collection is presented chronologically and thematically, reflecting the elders' visit and what type of objects they discussed each day, with a complete transcript of their discussion of the objects, how they were made, and when and how they are used. Published in association with Calista Elders Council in Bethel, Alaska.
