The Alto Perene speakers are located in the colonization frontier at the foot of the eastern Andes and the western fringe of the Amazonian jungle.

Transcribed and translated by Elena Mihas, a specialist in Northern Kampa language varieties, and grounded in the actual performances of Alto Perene speakers, this collection makes these stories available in English for the first time. Each original text in Alto Perene is accompanied by an English translation, and each theme is introduced with an essay providing biographical, cultural, and linguistic information.

Synopsis : Published through the Recovering Languages and Literacies of the Americas initiative, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The rich storytelling traditions of the Asheninka Perene Arawaks of eastern Peru are showcased in this bilingual collection of traditional narratives, ethnographic accounts, women's autobiographical stories, songs, chants, and ritual speeches. The Asheninkas are located in the colonization frontier at the foot of the eastern Andes and the western fringe of the Amazonian jungle. Unfortunately, their language has a slim chance of surviving because only about three hundred fluent speakers remain. This volume collects and preserves the power and vitality of Asheninka oral and linguistic traditions, as told by thirty members of the Native community. Upper Perene Arawak Narratives of History, Landscape, and Ritual covers a range of themes in the Asheninka oral tradition, through genres such as myths, folk tales, autobiographical accounts, and ethnographic texts about customs and rituals, as well as songs, chants, and oratory. Transcribed and translated by a specialist in Asheninka language varieties, Elena Mihas, and grounded in the actual performances of Asheninka speakers, this collection makes these stories available in English for the first time. Each original text in Asheninka is accompanied by an English translation and each theme is introduced with an essay providing biographical, cultural, and linguistic information. The result is a masterful, authoritative, yet entertaining and provocative collection of oral literature that vividly testifies to the power of Asheninka storytelling.

Critique: "Upper Perene Arawak Narratives of History, Landscape, and Ritual demonstrates a sophisticated and interesting use of discourse-centered approaches to culture and serves as a model for contemporary scholarship that integrates linguistic and sociocultural anthropology. From an ethnohistorical perspective, this work is especially valuable because it demonstrates how much cultural variability exists within and among the various indigenous communities of the Upper Amazon region. Another strength is the author's attention to individual narrators' personal histories as a way of contextualizing the different narratives transcribed and translated in later sections." - Jonathan Hill, author of Made-from-Bone: Trickster Myths, Music, and History in an Amazonian Community
