In the Summer of 1927, Edward Sapir spent two and a half months on the
Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation in northwestern California, where he
collected extensive data on Hupa (an Athabaskan language), including
77 narrative texts and a large lexical and grammtical file. He also
collected a small amount of data on Yurok and Chimariko. Sapir's Hupa
material has been the focus of Victor Golla's research for many years,
and this volume contains his full edition of Hupa texts, with complete
linguistic and textual annotations. The texts are accompanied by an
analytic lexicon - a complete inventory of all stems and derivational
bases contained in the corpus - and a detailed ethnographic glossary.
Also included are a Hupa to English index, a short grammatical sketch,
a place name guide, and an introductory essay on the position of
Sapir's Hupa study in his overall plan of Athabaskan linguistic
research. The Yurok and Chimariko materials have been edited by Howard
