Iñupiat
Alternate forms: Eskimo, Iñupiaq
Date: 1947, 1950, and undated
Subject: Music
Genre: Songs
Extent: 10 minutes
Description: The Iñupiat materials in the Floyd G. Lounsbury Papers consists of two recordings of songs performed by singers from Point Hope, Alaska, originally recorded by Red McCloud of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police at Aklavik, Northwest Territories in 1947 or 1948.. The singers are not identified on the recording or in any accompanying documentation. Gillespie re-recorded them by playing them off an original phonograph recording on to a wire recording. Sound quality is poor. This program was made as part of a wire recording sent to Floyd Lounsbury by John W. Gillespie, containing recordings made by himself and excerpts of other field recordings he had acquired. Includes Gillespie's commentary made in 1950. This recording is found in "Series VII: Audio recordings" in the collection guide, on a larger recording titled "Gillespie: Wyandot."
