Scope and Contents
Scope and Contents
Four texts in Meskwaki (Fox) syllabic text by Mary Earle (now Mrs. C. Davenport), Jim Peters, and Alfred Kiyana. A separate notebook contains English translations from Harry Lincoln in Truman Michelson's hand. Earle authored the text on how to raise children (translation pages 36-47); Peters authored "When Wisahkeha went around with the Apayashihas" (translation pages 1-35), which was originally misattributed to Sam Peters; and Kiyana wrote Kochipekweha (ko tti be ga A) (translation pages 47-76). On the last page of the notebook of translations are notes from "Y. Bear" on teasing relatives.
