Arguably, the most eloquent, powerful portrayal of Native Americans are written or narrated by Natives themselves. In Native Hermitage, authentic accounts of Natives voices are bought together, some for the first time, for readers who want an informed, authentic perspective about Native Americans. This work is significant because until recent times the literature has been largely devoid of firsthand perspectives. The need for accurate, authentic materials on native Americans has never been greater.

Helen Slwooko Carius was born in 1928, not 1945. And we are St. Lawrence Island Yupiks, not Sevukakmet. Sevukakmet means "ways of life on St. Lawrence Island". And the village of Gambell has two L's. Plus, she wrote about her life and her People. WE do not refer to ourselves as a tribe or nation, we are the People.
