Dena'inaq' Huch'ulyeshi: The Dena'ina Way of Living


Dena'inaq' Huch'ulyeshi: The Dena'ina Way of Living Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The range of the Denaand#8217;ina people stretches from the Cook Inlet region to southcentral Alaska and has been established for a thousand years. Yet their culture has largely been overlooked, leaving large gaps in the literature. Denaand#8217;inaqand#8217; Huchand#8217;ulyeshi, a new catalog of Denaand#8217;ina materials, is an ambitious project that finally brings their culture to light.

Lavishly illustrated with more than six hundred photographs, maps, and drawings, Denaand#8217;inaqand#8217; Huchand#8217;ulyeshi contains 469 entries on Denaand#8217;ina objects in European and American collections. It is enriched with examples of traditional Denaand#8217;ina narratives, first-person accounts, and interviews. Thirteen essays on the history and culture of the Athabascan people put the pieces into a larger historical context. This catalog is a comprehensive reference that will also accompany a large-scale exhibition running September 2013 through January 2014 at the Anchorage Museum.
