Paitarkiutenka / My Legacy to You . . . provides a wealth of information about all facets of Yupik life . . . . This latest book is so well done, and the impressive descriptions by Frank Andrew about his vast experiences are so extraordinary, that we can hope the legacy will be carried on in new and perhaps surprising ways. * Arctic * This book, like the others edited and translated by the trio, is a masterpiece of cultural knowledge. The information is encyclopedically detailed in a way that no third-person ethnography can be. And it is entirely credible because Andrew, like other Yupiit, is careful to share only information that he knows from personal experience . . . . By including references in the body of the work, and then expanding them at the end, the editors remind the reader of the holistic nature of Yup'ik life in which the spiritual, physical, moral, and genealogical are tied together inextricably. * Alaska History * These two publications, Paitarkiutenka and Yuungnaqpiallerput, are fitting companions, bringing to life the deep and ancient connections between the Yupik people and their ancestral homeland. * Pacific Northwest Quarterly * As the human story of a gifted storyteller and his people, Paitarkiutenka is a story that generates understanding, compassion, and respect for the Yup'ik way of life. This makes it a valuable read for anyone working with indigenous peoples irrespective of region or those interested in gaining an appreciation of the seamless connection between Yup'ik identity and history, the natural world, and oral tradition in the contemporary world. * Oral History Review *
