Date:

Scope and Contents:
There is a set of miscellaneous notes based on each of the Indian vocabularies; also a photostatic copy of the manuscript. The vocabularies appear to be derived from material in National Anthropological Archives manuscripts 144 (Ross); 132 (Kennicott, Chipewyan); 120 (Kennicott, Slave); 141 (Kennicott, Hare); and 221 (Pettitot, Hare). Differences between forms in this manuscript and those in the originals suggests that some analysis was carried out by Roehrig.
Local Numbers:
NAA MS 206
Local Note:
Chipewyan according to B.R. Ross (Caribou Eaters, or Etheneldeli, and Yellowknife); Chipewyan on the south shore of Slave Lake according to R. Kennicott; Slave Indians of Liard River near Fort Liard according to Kennicott; Hare Indians of Fort Good Hope, Mackenzie River, according to Kennicott; and Hare Indians of Great Bear Lake according to Father E. Petitot.
