The Cape Alitak Petroglyphs is the culmination of Woody Knebel’s ten years spent drawing, photographing, and experiencing the mysteries of this windswept place at the southern entrance to the Kodiak Archipelago. Shedding important light on Kodiak rock art, this volume provides in-depth cultural and artistic insight into an unusually rich picture of Alutiiq conventions, traditional symbolic history, and spiritual belief. Accompanied by color maps and black-and-white photography, The Cape Alitak Petroglyphs captures the majesty and mystery of the five hundred individual images that form the largest known cluster of stationary rock carvings in the Alaskan region and provides an important comparison to the many other forms of Alutiiq artistic expression preserved in artifacts and historic objects.

"Oscar Kawagley is a man of two worlds, walking the sometimes bewildering line between traditional Yupiaq culture and the Westernized Yupiaq life of today. In this study, Kawagley follows both memories of his Yupiaq grandmother, who raised him with the stories of the Bear Woman and respectful knowledge of the reciprocity of nature, and his own education in science as it is taught in Western schools. Kawagley is a man who hears the elders' voices in Alaska and knows how to look for the weather and to use the land and its creatures with the most delicate care. In a call to unite the two parts of his own and modern Yupiaq history, Kawagley proposes a way of teaching that incorporates all ways of knowing available in Yupiaq and Western science."--BOOK JACKET.

This book brings together as complete a record of traditional Yupik rules and rituals as is possible in the late twentieth century. Incorporating elders' recollections of the system of ruled boundaries and ritual passages that guided their parents and grandparents a century ago, Ann Fienup-Riordan brings into focus the complex, creative Yupik world view - expressed by ceremonial exchanges and the cycling of names, gifts, and persons - which continues to shape daily life in communities along the Bering Sea coast. Her analysis is illustrated with many contemporary and historical photographs. Identifying "metaphors to live by, " Fienup-Riordan tells of "the Boy Who Went to Live with Seals" and "the Girl Who Returned from the Dead." She explains how in Yupik cosmology their stories illustrate relationships among human beings, animals, and the spirit world - the "boundaries and passages" between death and the renewal of life.
