Peter Kalifornsky (1911-1993) was the first writer and nearly last speaker of his Alaskan native language, Dena’ina. Katherine McNamara, a poet and traveling scholar, was his amanuensis. Now, Katherine McNamara, through the non-profit Artist’s Proof Editions she directs, is producing From the First Beginning, When the Animals Were Talking, four volumes of interactive iBooks of the work he entrusted to her, with audio, video, texts, and images. Volume One is on iBooks, with three volumes in preparation.
