about this item

Anguyiim Nallini: Time of Warring: The History of Bow-and-Arrow Warfare in Southwest Alaska presents sixty-six stories of Yup'ik warfare, as told by elders who carry those stories in their communities. The stories have been collected over the past forty years by non-Native anthropologists; in total, over 100 people contributed to this collection. Stories are presented here in English; however, Yup'ik words and names are included where appropriate. The book includes a list of storytellers, including their residence, birthplace, and birth year, and speakers are cited in text with the corresponding transcript page number. Because narratives differ slightly from elder to elder and community to community, multiple tellings of the most important stories have been included. Stories are presented by region and are introduced with a section on the history of Yup'ik warfare. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
