Hensel examines how Yup'ik Eskimos and non-Natives use talk about hunting, fishing, and processing to construct and maintain gender and ethnic identities. The focus is on the enactment of ethnicity through discourse, rather than on ethnicity as an ascriptive category. Although ethnicity is constructed in either/or categories, the discourse of these residents show that their actual concern is less whether one is Native or non-Native, but how Native one is in a given context.
