INUIT, NORTHWEST COAST
Giant Cannibal-woman is defeated -- in this version of Northwest Coast children's cautionary tale by Upper Skagit elder, cultural preserver and famous storyteller Vi Hilbert
Another version of the same story -- common all along the Northwest Coast -- was retold in Vi Hilbert's book, but from a different teller originally.
Anthro Hans Haebelin records 1924 Makah version -- the storyline's different, but a major difference is how all the life's gone out of the collected tale. He's not concered with its oral-literary qualities, dialog, acting-out, songs. Something is preserved by these anthro-recordings, but it requires a culturally sophisticated storyteller's skill to bring them back to life.
Coyote outwits -- or outwaits -- a pair of cannibal Ogres. Told by Charley Anderson in 1954, Everett, Washington.
The Ogress is gone, but . . . -- what about her sister and daughter? Sis gets hers, you bet. But the daughter's still around . . . Told by Martha LaMont, Tualip, 1968. And, at the end, a note about different versions of tales, legends, myths.
