During the authors' many discussions with Yup'ik elders in southwest Alaska, the subject of ircenrraat, the little people, would pop up. They are said to be miniature and very crafty, and they exist in a different dimension with the ability to appear and disappear as they please in our world. People who have encountered them have seen them hunting, fishing, and gathering together as our own people do. Ircenrraat was written under the auspices of Calista Education and Culture and prepared by the Alaska Native Language Center. The 549-page paperback also contains 24 maps and photographs.
