Yup'ik Stories Read Aloud

by Jacobson, Anna


Yup’ik speaker Anna Jacobson has recorded six stories in her native language. Yup’ik transcriptions and English translations are presented in an accompanying booklet. The stories include five traditional tales from various Yup’ik areas of Southwestern Alaska and one account of family life in a Kuskokwim River fishcamp. The booklet allows the listener to follow the stories as they are being read. Translations are presented in an interlinear word-by-word format, allowing students to improve their understanding of spoken Yup’ik by listening as the stories are read and following the printed texts. Illustrated.

Language: Central Alaskan Yup'ik (CY17)
