Softcover (paperback) book. This book is a collection of short stories in Naskapi that features the "historical account" traditional Algonquian storytelling genre, tipâchimûna (stories). The book features some eyewitness accounts of tragic and exciting events on the land and sea, as well as first-person accounts of the storyteller's own adventures and skill as a hunter and provider. This is the sixth book in a series prepared for reading in Naskapi and in English by the Naskapi Development Corporation. John Peastitute (1896-1981) was a Naskapi Elder who was a well respected as a story-keeper and storyteller. His repertoire of both tipâchimûna and âtiyûhkinich was extensive, and his performances engaging. The tape recordings of his stories that have survived to be preserved, processed and studied are a precious legacy. The "Whale Hunt" collection is second book in this series of true historical accounts of Naskapi life told by a Naskapi speaker.
