Notes
-  Chuna McIntyre explains the song in English, then sings it in Central Yup'ik. (Content)
-  The song concerns a vision of the arrival of Europeans in Alaska by a Yup'ik medicine man a year before the exploration of the Alaska coastline by Captain James Cook between April and September, 1778. The Yup'ik had little further contact with Europeans until the second half of the nineteenth century, as they live north of the areas favored by Russian fur traders. (Content)
