Geography and place names

Click on an area of the map, from Robert Spott and A. L. Kroeber's 1942 Yurok Narratives, to see the names of places in that area. The geography database is being expanded but is still very incomplete, so you may not find what you want.

Edward Sapir, perhaps the greatest linguist of the 20th century, spent the summer of 1927 in Hoopa Valley. In addition to Hupa work, that summer he documented Yurok grammar and texts with Mary Marshall.
