More About the Author

I was born and raised in Alaska. I grew up in the fishing village of Ninilchik. I descend from the first Russian-Alutiiq family that settled our village. I grew up hearing Russian spoken. This gave me an early interest in languages which grew until I majored in Linguistics at universities and have worked as a linguist since 1975 when my wife and I moved to the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation in Montana. I enjoy writing about the Cheyenne language.

I also like to study and publish about our families that descend from Ninilchik, Alaska. And I sometimes write poetry.

My favorite role in life is being a grandpa.

there is very little material in this book, practically no grammar, so you won't make your own sentences, no explanations of pecularities of Cheyenne verb, there is a file containing this book somewhere on the Internet, but no sounds to it

"Let's Talk Cheyenne" is a great writers' aid for those who will depict Northern Cheyenne conversation. I thought it would help my writing project which includes some every-day talk among Southern Cheyenne who live in Oklahoma. Southern Cheyenne tribal members warned me the languages were different and I would need Southern Cheyenne translation. How true. The Cheyenne have managed to bridge the language difference--not me. I wish the Southern Cheyenne would compile a "Daily use of the Southern Cheyenne Language" following the same approach as this. Superior product that sets an example for Oklahoma Cheyenne students and teachers. Constance and Samuel Kritzberg
