Collection Technical Notes:
Master cassette was dubbed at the behest of Howard Berman from field recordings made by William Seaburg in 1977. Note that the cassette is mislabeled "Tolowa/Yurok" and that a Ms. Ella Norris is not, in fact, heard on the tape. The tape was donated to the LLA by Howard Berman on 5/21/81. WAVE file is now converted to an MP3.
