Publisher Comments:

Peter J. Seymour was a Salish storyteller. He carried forward earlier tales of elders along with his own experiences as fewer and fewer native speakers were sharing the Colville-Okanagan language and oral literature. To thwart the demise of this language, over the course of a decade he passed along Salish stories not only to his family but also to linguist Anthony Mattina.

The Complete Seymour: Colville Storyteller includes Seymourand#8217;s tales collected in the late 1960s and early 1970s, before his death. It documents Seymourand#8217;s rich storytelling and includes detailed morphological analyses and translations of this endangered language. This collection is an important addition to the canon of Native American narratives and literature and an essential volume for anyone studying Salish languages and linguistics.


Book News Annotation:

From the arrival of the first Europeans on the eastern shore of what is now the US, Native Americans had to face the problem of adapting to the expansion of European colonies. For this book, Silverman (history, George Washington U.) looks at the multi-tribal Brothertown and Stockbridge communities, formed originally in New England in the 18th century by Native Americans who had adopted Christianity. The author shows how cultural and political pressure from whites spurred the development of an Indian identity among the Brothertowns and Stockbridges, and shows how the many accommodations that these communities made to white culture never erased their differences from white society, and could not prevent the communities from being pushed off their homelands.
