In the process, they asked two Havasupai leaders and elders for every story they could remember. These were translated by native speakers and transcribed by the young anthropologists. Yet for unknown reasons Spier never published the whole collection of forty-eight stories, one of the earliest, most complete translations of an entire Native American oral tradition. Passed from Spier to anthropologist and Havasupai scholar Dr. Robert C. Euler, the stories, published here for the first time in book form with the permission of the Havasupai Tribal Council, are a cultural library and a cultural treasure that reflect an ancient Yuman-language mythological tradition. Publication, which has occurred in consultation with the council and elders, restores them to the People (Pai/Pa/Pah) from whom they arose."@en ;
