Yuuyaraq / The Yup'ik Way of Being

by Fienup-Riordan, Ann ; Carl, Davina ; Rearden, Alice ; Joseph, Corey


Yuuyaraq / The Yup'ik Way of Being presents stories, traditional tales, and qanruyutet (oral instructions) shared by elders from throughout southwest Alaska as part of the Yuuyaraq curriculum project. In what they say, elders provide a window into a uniquely Yup’ik view of how the world works and what it means to be a real person. And they have done so with their young people firmly in mind. Yuuyaraq embodies a way of life in which sharing is central -- sharing of food, of stories, of knowledge. Our hope is that this book carries this message forward, to audiences of all ages.

Language: Central Alaskan Yup'ik (CY34)
