Abstract:

Detailing a decade of life and language use in a remote Alaskan Yup'ikcommunity, "Youth Culture, Language Endangerment and Linguistic Survivance"provides rare insight into young people's language brokering and Indigenouspeople's contemporary linguistic ecologies. This book examines how twoconsecutive groups of youth in a Yup'ik village negotiated eroding heritagelanguage learning resources, changing language ideologies, and genderedsubsistence practices while transforming community language use over time.Wyman shows how villagers used specific Yup'ik forms, genres, and discoursepractices to foster learning in and out of school, underscoring the stakesof language endangerment. At the same time, by demonstrating how the youthand adults in the study used multiple languages, literacies andtranslanguaging to sustain a unique subarctic way of life, Wymanilluminates Indigenous peoples' wide-ranging forms of linguistic survivancein an interconnected world.
