 Tuning-In
He found that pausing was a central issue in the interaction between storytellers and their audiences, so he studied the phenomenon of tempo as a way of learning more about the role of pausing and about the role of rhythm in interaction.
Perhaps these Athabaskan teachers (and the KEEP teacher) were able to adjust to the rhythms of the children because they were more familiar with those rhythms.
Another possible explanation for the difference in the Athabaskan teachers' tuning-in behavior is that perhaps these Athabaskan teachers view their role as teachers in a fundamentally different way than do many other teachers.

 Archaeology of Interior Alaska
The Athabaskans have been defined as a group of mostly forest dwelling, hunting and gathering Indians, organized into bands, speaking a group of fairly closely related languages.
Anthropologists and linguists generally agree that proto-historic and historic Athabaskans were a separate group in Alaska, distinguishable on cultural and linguistic grounds from neighboring Inupiat, Yupik, Northwest Coast and Pacific Coast cultures.
Other groups of Athabaskan languages exist on the Pacific Coast of Oregon and northern California (where it is spoken by a number of riverine and coastal tribes), and in the Pueblo-Southwest (the Apachean languages which include Navajo, Kiowa, Lipan and various Apache tribes).

 Journal of American Indian Education-Arizona State University
The problem of a lack of reliable and systematic contrastive descriptions of the LEs spoken by Native Alaskan students may be unique to Alaska; while little has been done in Alaska, a number of useful studies of English language difficulties have been done with other Native American groups (Fletcher, 1983a).
Each year, the writing sample assignment (called the "prompt") is designed by a team consisting of the APEL instructional coordinator, a linguist (Athabaskan specialist) from the University of Alaska Native Language Center, and the researcher who will conduct the detailed analysis of the writing samples.
