Addl. KW Subjects:

Summary:
This subseries of the Southern California/Basin series contains John P. Harrington's research on Ute, Paiute, and Shoshoni.
There are a variety of Ute and Paiute notes assembled on slips containing vocabulary terms, a few grammatical paradigms, and a July 1, 1909, census of Southern Ute Indians. A small group of slips contain brief descriptions of artifacts, possibly Isaac P. Richardson's collection of Paiute artifacts found in a cave near Lovelock, Nevada. There is also a draft with related notes on the first recordings of the name Ute among accounts of early expeditions and explorers, as well as names other tribes applied to Utes.
The section of Paiute song texts and miscellaneous notes contain songs texts sent to Harrington from Edward Sapir in May 1910. There is also a paper prepared by Harrington on the Richardson collection. In addition, there are notes on the name Paiute and Paiute band names, as wells as Northern Paiute linguistic and ethnographic notes recorded by Johnny Smith and F.K. Kaiser.
The Shoshoni notes are sparse and are from his work with William Ottogary, Garfield Pocatello, William Edmo, and Frank Russell. They cover linguistic and ethnogrographic topics and include some Bannock terms from Edmo. There are also reading notes from publications on Shoshoni.
