This paper explains that, when a society loses its language, it also can lose a significant amount of its cultural identity. The paper indicates that, in just 20 years, this is happening to the Yupik Eskimo communities in Alaska . The author proposes comparing Yupik language stories to other tales from the Native Americans, the Anglo-Europeans, Africans and the Asians. The paper stresses that, although Yupik stories have been homogenized by their translation into English, enough of the original cultural flavor of the stories remains so that such a comparison could still be made.
