Native American Languages
What's new on our site today!
As a complement to our Yupik language information, here is our collection of indexed links
about the Yupik tribe and their society. Please note that Yupiks and other Native Alaskans
are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Yupik history is interesting and
important, but the Yupik people are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional
folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies
of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
