Description:A.P. Johnson in Sitka; (1) Kaa'kaa. SHI: Side A: Track 4: The same recording is in the Dauenhauer Oral Literature Collection, Item 31, Tape 27. Storytelling by A.P. Johnson�Íxt�ik� Éesh. The description in the catalogue says that it is �20 minutes in length. Speaking entirely in Tlingit. Johnson tells stories in Tlingit, primarily about how the Tlingit hunted and harvested when he was young and with his family; mention of terrain and place names; Kushda Kwáan; and ear piercing with deer sinew. Content by NMD: Begins by telling about his family and him out camping. A bunch of Kooshdaa (land otters) came. They were making noise around the boat. Eventually the Kooshdaa took the oars of a man. One Kooshdaa took an oar and placed it next to where he sat, and the man knew it was his brother. Someone yelled on shore so they went to shore to see. After they came ashore they ate lunch on the beach, fishing for salmon. Kaakáa is saved by a Kooshdaa Káa. Kooshdaa transformed into the wife of Kaakáa. Kooshdaa took him and took him south. There Kaakáa saw his Father's Sister who was also taken by Kooshdaa.� The story of Kaakáa, of the Kiks.ádi clan, is cut off at 20:00, and the rest of the recording is blank. Side B: Track 5: Blank Comments: The recordings in this collection were donated to the Sealaska Heritage Institute in 2013 by and in partnership with the Alaska Native Language Archive of University of Alaska Fairbanks, which holds the originals. This donation and partnership occurred for mutual benefit and to better document the content of these language recordings. In 2013 through an IMLS Enhancement Grant, Sealaska Heritage Institute was able to employ fluent speakers of the Tlingit language to review certain recordings in the ANLA collection. This work was conducted by elders David Katzeek (Tlingit name Kingeistí, Shangukeidí clan) and Paul Marks (Tlingit name Kinkaduneek, Lukaax.ádi clan). Zachary Zones, SHI Archivist, April 2014.
