RQ-50617-12

Calista Education and Culture, Inc. (Anchorage, AK 99518-3000)
Ann Fienup-Riordan (Project Director: December 2011 to present)
Yup'ik Historical Narratives and Traditional Tales: Stories for Future Generations

The preparation for publication of a collection of oral histories and traditional tales from the Yup'ik people of southwestern Alaska, and creation of a web site featuring audio recordings and transcriptions of the tales. (36 months)

Working together, expert Yup'ik translators Alice Rearden and Marie Meade and long-time collaborator anthropologist Ann Fienup-Riordan will: 1) transcribe, translate, and archive a unique collection of 120 audio tapes recorded between 1977-1991 with the last generation of Yup'ik speakers to tell these stories; 2) publish two bilingual volumes--Vol 1 historical narratives and Vol 2 traditional tales--including the most valuable and, until now, inaccessible narratives in this collection; 3) create a website with 100 audio recordings and time-aligned texts. In keeping with NEH's "Bridging Cultures" initiative, sharing these narratives in a number of formats aimed at a variety of audiences will promote a fuller understanding of the Yup'ik view of the world, fostering mutual respect and enlarging our understanding of the human condition. By joining traditional scholarship with online access, our project will stand as a model for how to make Native American oral literature accessible to all.
