Description

Lifeways in Southwest Alaska today remains inextricably bound to the seasonal cycles of sea and land.

Community members continue to hunt, fish, and make products from the life found in the rivers and sea.

Based on a wealth of oral histories collected over decades of research, this book explores the ancestral relationship between Yup'ik people and the natural world of Southwest Alaska.

Nunakun-gguq Ciutengqertut studies the overlapping lives of the Yup'ik with native plants, animals, and birds, and traces how these relationships transform as more Yup'ik people relocate to urban areas and with the changing environment.

The book will be hailed as a milestone work in the anthropological study of contemporary Alaska.
