Regular price $ 42.00
Elizabeth Nyman and Jeff Leer have collaborated to produce this deeply moving and personal record of life in the Taku River region of Southeastern Alaska, Interior British Colombia, and Southern Yukon. Told by Mrs. Nyman in her native Tlingit language and translated and edited by Jeff Leer, these six narrative texts relate ancient legends and traditional stories about the Yanyedi people of the Taku region. The Legacy of a taku River Tlingit Clan is a collection of some of the personal and mythological stories that define the Tlingits as a people. Mrs. Nyman is a bearer of her culture. Her stories are close accounts of her own life, and they reflect the closeness of her people to the land.
