The Porcupine Hunter and Other Stories: The Original Tsimshian Texts of Henry Tate
|Book: The Porcupine Hunter and Other Stories: The Original Tsimshian Texts of Henry Tate|
|Tsimshian texts as told by Henry Tate, translated into English. Newly transcribed from the original manuscripts, and annotated by Ralph Maud.|
|"Henry W. Tate (d. 1914) was a Tsimshian informant to ethnographer Franz Boas. Tate first wrote these stories in English before giving Boas the Tsimshian equivalent during the decade of 1903-1913. Boas published the stories in the much-consulted classic of ethnology, Tsimshian Mythology, in 1916. Through Ralph Maud's selection of the best of Tate's original stories, we can see the actual creative writer behind Boas' revised texts, now preserved much closer to the way Tate originally intended."|
