Dena'ina Sukdu'a, Vol. 3. Dghiliq' Sukdu'a (Mountain Stories).
Tenenbaum, Joan M., Comp.
This is the third 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 stories in this volume are part of a group of stories called Mountain Stories which are traditionally told in the summertime. Regarded as a picture of life before white people came to the area, they are told as a way of transmitting Tanaina beliefs, attitudes and values. 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)
