Mattina archive
Here you will find audio files linguist Anthony 'Tony' Mattina made available to the Colville Confederated Tribes regarding his upcoming book on Pete Seymour.
"The first 10 chapters are autobiography," Mattina said in an Oct. 24, 2013 meeting with the Colville Business Council. He also included chap-teek, or Coyote Stories.
Mattina was introduced to Seymour through Nellie Toulou in the late 1960s and began interviewing him. The interviews resurfaced recently as Mattina told the CBC of his intent to have a book published in honor of Seymour, a fluent speaker of Nselxcin. 
"I really want to thank you, Tony," Colville Business Councilwoman Stevey Seymour said. "It touches me (as a Business Council member and relative). This is huge for us."

Here are the interviews Mattina has given the tribe rights to:
