Wolverine Myths and Visions: Dene Traditions from Northern Alberta
Publisher: University of Nebraska Press
xxv+259pp with 3 maps, 15 figures and bibliography. Compiled by the Dene Wodih Society. Illustrated by Dia Thurston. 1st edition.
The people who call themselves Dene Dhaa, a group of the Athapaskan-speaking Natives of northwestern Canada known as the Slave or Slavery Indians, now number about one thousand and occupy three reserves in northwestern Alberta. Because their settlements were until recently widely disposed and isolated, they have maintained their language and traditions more successfully than most other Indian groups. This collection of their stories, recorded in the Dene language with literal interlinear English glosses and in a free English translation, represents a major contribution to the documentation of the Dene language, ethnography and folklore.
A fine copy issued without jacket.
