Wa7 Sqwéqwel’ sSam: St’át’imcets stories from Sam Mitchell is a collection of 15 historical narratives, personal anecdotes, and descriptions of traditional practices, as told by Sam Mitchell in St’át’imcets between 1968 and 1973. These narratives, originally recorded by Randy Bouchard, have been transcribed and translated by John Lyon (UBC-Okanagan) and Henry Davis (UBC-Vancouver). Each narrative is presented in the original St’át’imcets, in an English translation, and finally as a fully analyzed text featuring a detailed interlinear gloss. Each narrative has an accompanying audio file, so that readers can listen to the original St’át’imcets. This volume is the third in a series of Upper St’át’imcets texts, jointly published by PNWLL Press and the Upper St’át’imc Language, Culture and Education Society (USLCES).
We hope this volume will be valuable for advanced language learners and teachers, as well as linguists and anyone with an interest in Salish languages and culture.
