259 pp, 9 1/4" H. Ex-libary. B&w drawings, maps. "The Dene Dhaa traditionally believe that long ago all the animals talked and lived like humans. Two Animal People stand out in their stories: Wolf and Wolverine. Wolf often helps people in Dene myth and is respected by many traditional Dene who will not trap wolves for fur. Wolverine is a trickster and cultural transformer. Although the relationship between humans and wolverines may often be antagonistic since wolverines destroy traps and ruin belongings, in these stories, Wolverine also has great powers of healing and transformation. Historically, stories were considered as valuable possessions and Dene storytellers are part of a well established oral tradition. These stories collected by the Dene Wodih Society come from religious leaders, respected elders, and authorities on Dene tradition. The Dene Dhaa, a group of Athapaskan-speaking natives, also known as the Slave or Slavey Indians, occupy three reserves in northwestern Alberta. Because their settlements were until recently dispersed and isolated, they have maintained their language and traditions. Recorded in the Dene language with literal interlinear English gloses and in a free English translation, this collection of stories represents a major contribution to the documentation of the Dene language, ethnography and folklore." This is an ex-library book with library stamps on top/bottom of text block and on title-page, large areas of surface paper loss and glue/paper residue on three endpapers from removal of library protective jacket and card pocket. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling - mainly at top of spine, small surface paper pull on inside of each flap, soft wrinkling on rear flap, label glue residue at bottom of spine.
