Anguyiim Nallini, Time of Warring: The History of Bow-and-Arrow Warfare in Southwest Alaska (Book)
Title: Anguyiim Nallini, Time of Warring: The History of Bow-and-Arrow Warfare in Southwest Alaska
Author: Alice Rearden
Author: Ann Fienup-Riordan
Editor: Ann Fienup Riordan
Abstract: This book draws on little-known oral histories from the Yup’ik people of southwest Alaska to detail a period of bow-and-arrow warfare that took place in the region between 1300 and 1800. The result of more than thirty years of research, discussion, and field recordings involving more than one hundred Yup’ik men and women, Anguyiim Nalliini tells a story not just of war and violence, but also of its cultural context—the origins of place names, the growth of indigenous architectural practices, the personalities of prominent war- riors and leaders, and the eventual establishment of peaceful coexistence. The book is presented in bilingual format, with facing-page translations, and it will be hailed as a landmark work in the study of Alaska Native history and anthropology.

Ciulirnerunak Yuuyaqunak = Do Not live Without an Elder: The Subsistence Way of Life in Southwest Alaska (Book)
Title: Ciulirnerunak Yuuyaqunak = Do Not live Without an Elder: The Subsistence Way of Life in Southwest Alaska
Editor: Alice Rearden, Transcriber
Editor: Ann Fienup-Riordan
Abstract: In October of 2010, six men who were serving on the board of the Calista Elders Council (CEC) gathered in Anchorage with CEC staff to spend three days speaking about the subsistence way of life. The men shared stories of their early years growing up on the land and harvesting through the seasons, and the dangers they encountered there. The gathering had wide regional breadth, as elders came from the Bering Sea coast as well as the Yukon and Kuskokwim rivers. And while their accounts had some commonalities, they also served to demonstrate the wide range of different approaches to subsistence in different regions. This book gathers the men’s stories for the current generation and those to come. Taken together, they become more than simply oral histories—rather, they testify to the importance of transmitting memories and culture and of preserving knowledge of vanishing ways of life.
