This modified alphabet booklet belongs to a series of bilingual instructional materials in Hupa and English. The booklet begins with a Hupa Unifon alphabet chart giving the symbols used to reproduce the most simple version of the sounds in the Hupa language. Nearly 200 basic vocabulary words and phrases are given. A Hupa consonant is followed by one to five Hupa words containing the consonant in initial, medial, or final position. The word in English is printed to the side in smaller letters. Pages contain three to six pen and ink illustrations of the word listed. The English translations given on page 3 of the booklet exemplify the cultural emphasis present throughout the word list: maple, low, my pocket, raw, paddles, my stomach, scar, he's eating, thunder, seven, abalone, narrow, mountain ridge, I'm pounding acorns, I'm grinding acorns, after me, Redwood Ridge, and alder.
