The Porcupine Hunter and Other Stories
The Original Tsimshian Texts of Henry W. TateBook - 1993
Henry W. Tate (d. 1914) was a Tsimshian informant to ethnographer Franz Boas. Tate first wrote these stories in English before giving Boas the Tsimshian equivalent during the decade of 1903-1913. Boas published the stories in the much-consulted classic of ethnology, Tsimshian Mythology, in 1916. Through Ralph Maud's selection of the best of Tate's original stories, we can see the actual creative writer behind Boas' revised texts, now preserved much closer tothe way Tate originally intended.
