    • Abstract:
      This is the first of a set of four books containing 24 examples of the Tanaina art of storytelling. They are intended for use in a bilingual education setting for competent speakers of Tanaina Athabaskan who have knowledge of the writing system. The six stories in this volume are part of a large group of traditional stories called "sukdu" which were usually told during the long fall and winter evenings. They are regarded by the people as descriptions of the way the world was before it became as they know it today. The stories are presented as they were told by the storytellers and are transcribed in the Tanaina practical orthography. Each story contains an interlinear word-by-word literal translation and is followed by a free English Translation. A chart of the vowels and consonants of the Tanaina alphabet is appended. (AMH)
