Scope and Contents
Typed page proofs of "Nanabushu swallowed by the Sturgeon" in Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwa) with English translation. The story was collected by William Jones (1971-1909) from Marie Syrette (originally from Lake Nipigon) at Fort William, Ontario, sometime during 1903-1905. The texts were sent in 1916 to Truman Michelson, who was preparing the Ojibwa stories collected by Jones for publication the following year. According to Ives Goddard the dialect of the Ojibwa text is from the north shore region of Lake Superior (8/19/75).
