    • Extent: 35 cassette tapes, 6 film reels
    • Historical information: Verdena Parker was born and raised in Hoopa Valley, California in 1936 and spoke Hupa as her first language. She later moved with her family to Winston, Oregon but continued to speak Hupa daily until the death of her mother in 1997. One of the few remaining fluent first-language speakers of Hupa, in the early 2000s she got involved with Hupa revitalization and documentation activities, serving as a consulting expert on the Hupa language for various projects and classes in Hoopa Valley. Beginning in 2005 she also collaborated with researchers based in the Department of Linguistics at the University of California, Berkeley.
    • Scope and content: The recordings in this collection are the result of Verdena Parker's efforts to document her knowledge of the Hupa language for posterity. From approximately 2003 to 2006, she created a series of audio cassettes featuring her speaking Hupa for use in language revitalization programs. The recordings include a wide variety of texts (traditional stories, oral history, and other narrative genres), vocabulary, translations of English texts into Hupa, and observations on traditional and contemporary life in Hoopa Valley. Some of the texts are told in Hupa alternating with English translations, but many others are told in Hupa alone.
