Title Henry Williams
Draft: A story told by Henry Williams about what it was like around Chalkytsik before it became a village. Then once it became a village, the various people who had stores there which all eventually went broke. Then David Salmon got some money from the Tanana Chiefs Conference, and from that time on they've had a store. He's talking about when the White man appeared, probably 1840s, then later he talks about life in the early 1900s.
Notes from Kathy Sikorski and Allan Hayton (2-14-2012)
The edits could have been made by Jeff Leer probably as he heard Katherine Peter read the story because he could hear tone. (Notes are by Kathy Sikorski
