3 editions published between 1986 and 1991 in English and held by 79 libraries worldwide
An illustrated vocabulary presents approximately 275 Yurok words organized topically from the Indian perspective to demonstrate the relationship between Yurok Indians and their social and natural worlds. English terms arranged alphabetically within each topic have two accompanying Yurok entries--one a Unifon spelling, the other having syllable breaks and marked accents. Topics include people, cultural things, baskets, acorns, plants, animals, birds, fish, and food. An introduction explains the role of language in Indian culture and points out differences in styles of thought between Indians and whites. A Yurok Unifon single sound chart is included. (Lfl)

Hupa activity book ( Book )
3 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and held by 74 libraries worldwide
Lessons used in a Hupa bilingual class during the 1986-87 academic year are compiled in this manual, which was generated cooperatively by the Hupa teachers. The lessons are arranged in a progression from easier to harder and cover vocabulary, conversations, verbs, holidays, and stories. The first two chapters present basic vocabulary terms for numbers, body parts, clothing, animals, colors, musical instruments, weather, time, and talking about one's self--family members, places, pets, favorite foods, and hobbies. Chapter 3 presents topics of conversation and includes lessons that teach correct language for children to use with elders and other ways to convey respect in Hupa culture. Chapter 4 contains lessons on Hupa verbs, most of which contain stems, pronoun and tense markers, and sometimes markers indicating types of motion or general adverbial concepts. In Chapter 5, the holidays section, metaphors in the Hupa language are applied to Anglo-American holidays. Names and greetings for each major holiday are created from Hupa verbs that describe key events or characters. The final section contains stories ranging from retellings of well-known traditional myths, such as "The Sucker and the Eel," to personal experience narratives by Hupa teachers. The manual is illustrated throughout with line drawings, and numerous student worksheets are included. (Jhz)
