Geography and place names

Click on an area of the map, from Robert Spott and A. L. Kroeber's 1942 Yurok Narratives, to see the names of places in that area. The geography database is being expanded but is still very incomplete, so you may not find what you want.

Teaching, learning, and documenting Yurok

Weitchpec Frank, a young man when he first worked as an interpreter and guide for A. L. Kroeber, also taught Kroeber and his colleagues, over many years, much about Yurok culture and the Yurok language. Frank recorded texts beginning as early as 1901.
