186 FEJES, Claire Villagers : Athabaskan Indian Life Along the Yukon River. First Edition in dustjacket
Random House, New York, 1981, ISBN:0394516737 
FEJES, Claire. Villagers : Athabaskan Indian Life Along the Yukon River. New York : Random House, (1981). Firs Printing. Pp (16),[3]-204,(6). Ilustrated. Map. 8vo, grey cloth spne, black paper covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. "The natives of Alaska, the Athabaskan Indians, are facing a momentous crisis. Their traditional way of life is being threatened with extinction by the culture of the white man. What changes have been wrougnt in the lite style of the Indians? How are they meeting the challenge to their heritage? Will they prevail as a people? In Villagers, Claire Fejes - a resident of Alaska for more than thirty-five years, one of the state's finest painters, and the author of People of the Noatak, a sensitive portrait of Eskimo life—takes us on an extended voyage up the Tanana and Yukon rivers to visit Indian villages along the way-New Minto, Galena Kovukuk, Fort Yukon, Nenana, Kaltag, Rampart. She faithfully records in paintings and drawings, butabove all in the words of the villagers themselves—men, women and. childre n-the life of the Athabaskans, past and present, and their prospects for the future. Because the Indians trusted Claire Fejes, they spoke openly abouttheir predicaments. Hunting pressures have reduced the moose and caribou p opulations so central to their livelihood. Unable to provide for themselves, many must leave their native villages to look for work in the cities. Traditional practical skills are vanishing. Welfare ranks are swelling. The new generation finds itself in a dilemma: to remain true tp ancestral ways orto adopt urban values. (Few can speak Athabaskan. for until recently it wa s illegal to teach the language in the schools: most have been educated outside their communities, only to return with unnecessary skills.) Faced withthe intrusion of white values and their own misfortunes, many Indians have grown bitter and resentful—and hopeless. The incidence of suicide and alco holic addiction in some villages is alarming. Recently, however, there has been a resurgence of ethnic pride among the Indians. They are becoming infused with a new and deep respect for tradition. Hope for the survival of dene—the. People—exists. Deeply felt and generously illustrated, Villagers is the human drama of a people's truggle to retain its identity, in spite of threats from within and from without. Villagers is a timeless story." from the dj). Contents : 1. Beginnings. 2. Old Minto Remembered. 3. New Minto. 4.Chief Peter John of Minto. 5. On the Tanana River. 6. The Yukon. 7. Nuchal awoya. 8.
