Title [It's an Ill Wind]
Description:It's an Ill Wind
"In this paper I suggest that modern speakers of Haida adhere to native patterns of narrative structure even when they are relating non-traditional incidents or materials. This tendency was discovered in gathering and analyzing material for a trilineal Haida text (Eastman and Edwards 1991) and further elucidated in Edwards and Eastman (1992, this volume). I use the analytic methods of Hymes (1981), Tedlock (1983) and Bright ( 1984) to uncover this narrative structure. My material includes a family story from the life of a Haida person and a translation of the fable "The North Wind and the Sun" into Haida."
