Summary: Before outsiders arrived, about 100 distinct Indian languages were spoken in California, many of them alive today. Each of these languages represents a unique way of understanding the world and expressing that understanding. Flutes of Fire captures the range, beauty, and delight of this great heritage.

Flutes of Fire examines many different aspects of Indian languages: languages, such as Yana, in which men and women have markedly different ways of speaking; more ingenious ways used in each language for counting (some people count in tens, others in fives, others in fours, Yurok has 15 different ways of counting, depending upon what is being counted); discusses how language can retain evidence of ancient migrations and other events; talks about what different groups are doing to keep languages alive and pass them down to the younger generations. less
