"A recent book developed out of a conference focused on the Tlingit people reveals the radically altered situation today. It includes fascinating insights into Native Alaskans and British Columbians as they speak to one another and to anthropologists. The familiarity and intimacy is immediate. The writers mostly know and address one another on a first name basis."
