Dena'ina Sukdu'a, Vol. 2. Chulyin Sukdu'a (Raven Stories).
Tenenbaum, Joan M., Comp.
This is the second of a set of four books containing 24 examples of the Tanaina art of storytelling. They are intended for use in a bilingual education setting for competent speakers of Tanaina Athabaskan who have knowledge of the writing system. The five stories in this volume are examples of a large number of raven stories told by the Tanaina people. In these stories the raven is the character who made the world and the things in it the way they are. The stories are presented as they were told by the storytellers and are transcribed in the Tanaina practical orthography. Each one contains an interlinear word-by-word translation and is followed by a free English translation. A chart of the vowels and consonants of the Tanaina alphabet is appended. (AMH)
