"Organized chronologically and thematically, Encounters with the People is an edited, annotated compilation of unique primary sources related to Nez Perce history--Native American oral histories, diary excerpts, military reports, maps, and more. Generous elders shared carefully-guarded stories, beginning with early Nimiipuu/Euro-American contact and extending through the Treaty of 1855 held at Walla Walla. The editors scoured archives, federal repositories, and museums in search of documents related to regional cultural and environmental history--most published for the first time or found only in obscure sources."--Publisher's description
The Indianization of Lewis and Clark by William R Swagerty( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although some have attributed the success of the Lewis and Clark expedition primarily to gunpowder and gumption, historian William R. Swagerty demonstrates in this two-volume set that adopting Indian ways of procuring, processing, and transporting food and gear was crucial to the survival of the Corps of Discovery. The Indianization of Lewis and Clark retraces the well-known trail of America's most famous explorers as a journey into the heart of Native America - a case study of successful material adaptation and cultural borrowing. Beginning with a broad examination of regional demographics and folkways, Swagerty describes the cultural baggage and material preferences the expedition carried west in 1804. Detailing this baseline reveals which Indian influences were already part of Jeffersonian American culture, and which were progressive adaptations the Corpsmen made of Indian ways in the course of their journey. Swagerty's exhaustive research offers detailed information on both Indian and Euro-American science, medicine, cartography, and cuisine, and on a wide range of technologies and material culture. Readers learn what the Corpsmen wore, what they ate, how they traveled, and where they slept (and with whom) before, during, and after the return. Indianization is as old as contact experiences between Native Americans and Europeans. Lewis and Clark took the process to a new level, accepting the hospitality of dozens of Native groups as they sought a navigable water route to the Pacific. This richly illustrated, interdisciplinary study provides a unique and complex portrait of the material and cultural legacy of Indian America, offering readers perspective on lessons learned but largely forgotten in the aftermath of the epic journey

Using Books to Illustrate a World without Them : Selecting Materials for the Newberry Library Exhibition, "America in 1492." by William R Swagerty( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Newberry Library, (Chicago, Illinois) lays claim to holding within the Edward E. Ayer collection the finest singler collection of books on the culture and history of native america. This paper discusses the mandates and challenges that confronted the Newberry staff when it mounted its quincentennial exhibition entitled, "American in 1492." Written by the exhibit's curator, the paper focuses on how the curatorial staff dealt with certain central facts; namely, that: (1) virtually all of the available materials were produced by Europeans; (2) the civilizations of America in 1492 all lacked printing while in many European countries printing was becoming widespread; and (3) most of these American civilizations lacked complex written records. Thus the task of the library was to mount an exhibit using primarily European print media--that offered a necessarily European perspective--to illustrate worlds lacking printed materials on the eve of the Columbian voyages. Their success in doing so is assessed, and the methodology employed by the curators in selecting among the available materials is outlined. Two hundred forty-three items became part of the actual exhibition. By category of medium they were as follows: 92 books, 8 manuscripts, 6 maps, 38 original flat art works, 44 pieces of reproduced art, 52 artifacts, 2 objects borrowed from private lenders, and 1 modern Pueblo Drum. About one-third of the items were made or interpreted primarily by native hands or voices. A checklist of items included in the exhibit is appended. (DB)
