[VHS video tape] A Matter of Respect: Modern Alaska Natives balancing the past and the present. VHS, 30 minutes. by Ellen Frankenstein & Sharon Gmelch. A New Day Films Release, 1992. May have been viewed once. A look at the life and values of the Tlingit Indians of Sitka, Alaska. “A warm picture of people using humor and energy to deal
with the modern and the traditional.”-Society for Visual Anthropology. From the VHS box: "In this stereotype-breaking documentary about the meaning of tradition and change, people speak frankly about the challenges they face balancing their lives in two cultures. A young drummer and dancer guides tourists through a museum; a silver carver/disc jockey talks about his love both of rock and roll and traditional carving; and a Tlingit elder teaches children at a summer fish camp. A Matter of Respect portrays modern Alaska Natives expressing their culture and identity and honoring their ancestors’ way of life through teaching language, harvesting and preparing traditional foods, restoring community cemeteries and dancing, carving and weaving."  $58 plus $5 priority mail postage.

              for sale.
[VHS video tape] "Gwich'in Niintsyaa, the 1988 Arctic Village Gathering" Publisher: Gwich'in Niintsyaa Steering Committee, Anchorage, Alaska, c1989. Portions in Athapascan with English subtitles, the rest is in English.

"Caribou People: Gwich'in Niintsyaa is the story of the gathering that sparked the Gwich'in struggle to protect the calving grounds of the Porcupine (River) Caribou Herd from oil development.The Porcupine herd is the basis of Gwich'in life and culture. A gathering of all the bands is only called in times of great danger. Over 100 years after the last such gathering, the chiefs called the Gwich'in Niintsyaa in 1988 to confront thethreat to the caribou."

The entire Gwich’in Nation was called together by our chiefs in Arctic Village, Alaska, June 5-10, 1988, to carefully address this issue and to seek the advice of our elders. The Gwich’in people of every community from Arctic Village, Venetie, Fort Yukon, Beaver, Chalkyitsik, Birch Creek, Stevens Village, Circle, and Eagle Village in Alaska; from Old Crow, Fort McPherson, Arctic Red River, Aklavik, and Inuvik in Canada decided that the United States Congress and President should recognize the rights of the Gwich’in people to continue to live their way of life by prohibiting development in the calving and post-calving grounds of the Porcupine Caribou Herd.

Murdoch, John. Ethnological Results of the Point Barrow Expedition. 1892.
Washington: Government Printing Office.  First Edition. 
Hand bound  in London, England, in fine full calf.
A sumptuous volume that would make a wonderful gift, presentation, or award.


The only major early ethnography of northern Alaskan Eskimos, Murdoch's heavily illustrated study of this unique people's society and material culture remains a seminal reference work.

"The people whose arts and industries are represented by the collection to be described are the Eskimo of the northwestern extremity of the continent of North America, who make permanent homes at the two villages of Nuwuk and Utkiavwin. Small contributions to the collection were obtained from natives of Wainwright Inlet and from people of the Inland River (Nunatafimiun) who visited the northern villages. Nuwuk, "the Point," is situated on a slightly elevated knoll at the extremity of Point Barrow...and Utkiavwln, "the Cliffs," at the beginning of the high land at Cape Smyth, 11 miles southwest from Nuwuk. The name Utkiavwln was explained as meaning "the high place, whence one can look out," and was said to be equivalent to Ikplk, a cliff...."
