About this product
- DescriptionAs Alaska s Native peoples confront contemporary challenges, they increasingly find strength in the traditional values and practices that have sustained their cultures for millennia. In stirring words, What the Elders Have Taught Us pays tribute to the first Alaskans and the ancient values they consider paramount. Ten essayists, one from each of Alaska s diverse Native cultures, were asked to write about a specific value that is common to all, lessons that have been part of their oral teachings for countless generations. The resulting essays are infused with personal reflection as well as profound truths. Featuring Roy Corral s outstanding photography, What the Elders Have Taught Us offers rare insight into the lives of Alaska s First People at work and play, in celebration and sorrow living out the legacy handed down by the elders.
