      The fascinating book Anguyiim Nalliini/Time of Warring draws on little-known oral histories from the Yup'ik people of southwest Alaska to detail a period of bow-and-arrow warfare that took place in the region between 1300 and 1800. The result of more than thirty years of research, discussion, and field recordings involving more than one hundred Yup'ik men and women, Anguyiim Nalliini tells a story not just of war and violence, but also of its cultural context--the origins of place names, the growth of indigenous architectural practices, the personalities of prominent warriors and leaders, and the eventual establishment of peaceful coexistence.
