Karuk Fishing.
Bennett, Ruth, Ed.; Goodwin, Norman
A booklet on traditional fishing practices of the Karuk Indians of northwestern California is presented in the formal, literary English speech of Norman Goodwin, a Karuk medicine man involved in preserving ancient tribal traditions. Empirical information and personal narratives are combined in descriptions of different kinds of nets, social rules governing fishing, type of skills and attitudes involved, rituals, and personal experiences in learning how to fish. Karuk words are included in the English text; 60 common expressions and terms concerning fishing are provided in English, Karuk, and Karuk Unifon. Recall of information is tested with a set of 12 questions and responses in English. (LFL)
