Faith, Food, and Family in a Yupik Whaling Community
summary
Through a skillful blend of ethnography, oral history, and ethnohistory, Jolles views the contemporary Yupik people of St. Lawrence Island in terms of the enduring beliefs and values that have contributed to the community’s ongoing survival and adaptability. Drawing on ten years of fieldwork, Jolles demonstrates the central importance of three aspects of Yupik life: religious beliefs, devotion to a subsistence life way, and family and clan ties.
