Notes: "This dictionary has been made possible by the work of many people over many years. William Jones (1871-1909), as graduate student under Franz Boas, wrote his texts from dictation by speakers in the Tama settlement who were not named, perhaps at their request. He was assisted in editing and translating them by his father Henry Clay Jones (1844-1912). Truman Michelson (1879-1938), working for the Bureau of Ethnology of the Smithsonian Institution, collected over 27,000 pages of Meskwaki texts written by Meskwaki speakers, beginning in 1911 and continuing for a number of years. Nearly half of these pages were written by Alfred Kiyana (Keahna) (1877-1918). Other major contributors among the more than 30 writers were Charley H. Chuck (1867-1940), Sakihtanohkweha (1875-1957), Sam Peters (1887-1960), Jim Peters (1866-1917), Bill Leaf (1884-1947), and Jack Bullard (1879-1927). Michelson was assisted by Edward Davenport, Harry Lincoln, Horace Poweshiek, George Black Cloud, and others. James A. Geary compiled a slip file of words on the basis of manuscript and published sources and fieldwork. In our work in Tama we relied most extensively on the patient assistance of Adeline Wanatee (1910-1996) and Everett Kapayou (1933-2006) in pronouncing and explaining the words in the writings"--Preface (page v).
"A publication of the Recovering Voices Program of the Smithsonian Institution, supported in part by a gift from the Shoniya Fund."--Title page verso.
Includes separate appendixes of terms for animals, birds, body parts, calendar, numbers and counting, and relatives.

Abstract:

This is a dictionary of the Meskwaki language, a member of the Algonquian langugage family spoken in Tama County, Iowa. It is a preliminary documentation of the words of the older form of the language used in writings by native speakers from the early twentieth century, including William Jones, and the collection of manuscripts written for Truman Michelson of the Bureau of American Ethnology. The name Meskwaki (earlier spelled Mesquakie) replaces the historical name Fox. The full official name of the people who speak Meskwaki is the Sac and Fox Tribe of the Mississippi in Iowa.--Publisher.
