Ethnological and linguistic notes collected by Truman Michelson on the Arapaho. Michelson obtained ethnological information from Little Shield, Sun Road, and Wolf Bear, with John Goggles serving as interpreter. Topics include games and accounts of Friday and Bad Arm (Thomas Fitzpatrick). Also among the ethnological notes are Michelson's observations of a peyote lodge ceremony with comparisons to Alfred Kroeber's descriptions. The linguistic notes are more extensive and include vocabulary and grammar notes from Goggles and other sources.
