    • Historical information: Verdena Parker was born and raised in 1936 in Hoopa Valley, California, and speaks 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 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 longstanding collaboration with researchers affiliated with the Hupa Language Documentation Project, which originated at UC Berkeley in 2005. Ramón Escamilla and Justin Spence joined the project in 2007, and they have continued the research effort since moving to the University of Central Arkansas and the University of California, Davis, respectively. As of August 2020, this deposit covers their work with Mrs. Parker from 2015 to 2019, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation's Documenting Endangered Languages program (BCS #1500851). The recordings cover a broad range of topics: original texts told by Mrs. Parker, including narrations of 8mm films she recorded in the 1960s; sessions in which recordings are transcribed and/or translated; elicitation of paradigms, grammatical phenomena such as evidentiality, purpose clauses, and indefinites, and words and phrases for use in language revitalization programs; re-transcription and translation of unpublished texts found in archival sources. Some of the recordings that were transcribed and translated are part of existing collections at the Survey of California and Other Indian Languages, or they are part of the the present deposit. Others were created by the Hupa Language Documentation Project in previous years and will be deposited at a later date.
