Collection of 10 notebooks containing notes and texts collected by Truman Michelson at Bersimis, Natashquan, and Seven Islands in Quebec, Canada, in 1937.

The field notebooks consist primarily of Innu-aimun (Montagnais) linguistic notes, including kinship terms and general vocabulary, and stories in Innu-aimun with phonetic transcriptions and English translations. There are also some ethnological notes and notes on Indians in neighboring areas and at James Bay and Hudson Bay. The English translations of some of the stories in the Natashquan notebooks are based on French translations (not present) of the Innu-aimun texts. Michelson worked with Sylvester Roc at Bersimis; Mathieu Moreau (from St. Augustine) and Pierre Napes (from Mingan) at Natashquan; and Alec Fontaine, Batiste Picard, Joseph Rabbit Skin (from Lake Kaniapiskan), Daniel St. Ange (of Moisie and Shelter Bay), and Sylvester MacKenzie (of Moisie and Bersimis) at Seven Islands.

Scope and Contents:
Truman Michelson's field notes on the Cree of James Bay and Hudson Bay in Canada. The materials, consisting primarily of texts and linguistic notes and some ethnological notes, were collected as part of Michelson's efforts to make a linguistic map of the area. The coverage of the notes is thus expansive and includes the Cree of Moose River, Rupert House, East Main, Albany River, English River, Severn Island, Weenusk, Waswanipi, Great Whale River, and Fort George. The texts are mostly stories from Frank Ricard and Harvey Smallboy, written in Moose Cree syllabic and phonetic text with English translations. There is also a story from Emily Trapper written in Rupert House Cree syllabary and translated into Moose Cree and English. Michelson worked closely with William Allan, who provided a great deal of linguistic and ethnological information and translated most of the Cree texts into English.
