Rate this:

Recording Their Story recounts the life and work of groundbreaking ethnologist James Teit and presents the key collections of Tahltan materials he gathered in the early 1900's.

Teit's connection to the Canadian Museum of Civilization and his ethnographic work among the Tahltan of northern British Columbia began in 1911. In two field seasons (1912 and 1915), with the participation of many Tahltan, Teit assembled a large and important collection of artifacts, photographs, song recordings and myths. Part biography and part catalogue of this collection, Recording Their Story reveals how the various threads of Teit's life and work came together in his final major ethnographic study.
