Language as a subject


This collection of Walapai texts, gathered between 1956 and 1973, reflects the knowledge of speakers that were still familiar with traditional storytelling styles and in full control of the language. The three sections deal with tales of a mythical past; tales and songs of human life; and oral histories.
