This is a comprehensive treatment of one of Alaska’s oldest ancestral languages. Through its 19,000 entries and thirty-one appendices—with categories such as kin terms, names of constellations, and a list of explanations—the dictionary is an exceptional blend of linguistic and cultural references. 
Lawrence Kaplan, director, Alaska Native Language Center, University of Alaska Fairbanks
“The dictionary has been in the making for several decades, and the result is well worth the wait. MacLean and those who worked with her have consulted with Iñupiaq speakers from across Alaska’s North Slope to compile a comprehensive collection of word stems, along with postbases, grammatical endings, and an array of other valuable material. . . . This dictionary will prove fascinating for anyone interested in the Iñupiat and their language.”
