Date:
April-November, 1919
Scope and Contents:
Includes Autograph Document (carbon copy) 96 pages. The Wichita texts are entitled, "Wichita Stories," and, except the first, numbered with Roman numerals (II-X). Each of the 10 sections is apparently a separate story, because each begins with an introductory formula. The Kichai translations of four of these Wichita stories are given numbers corresponding to the 4 Wichita stories. Each Kichai translation has an accompanying carbon copy. The vocabularies include separate Kichai and Wichita word lists and phrases as well as a short comparative vocabulary of the two. There is also 1 sheet containing words in other Indian languages as well as Wichita and Kichai.
Biographical / Historical:
Kichai informants: Josie Caley, Old Man Yellowbird, and "Wits and wife." John Hadden was the interpreter with Jose Caley. No Wichita informants are named by Swanton, but the informant for a Wichita version of a Pawnee story is recorded as saying that the "name of Old Pawnee who told him the story [was] giwakodadaka."
The location and date of the collection of this material is mentioned in Bureau of American Ethnology-AR 40, page 5, and Bureau of American Ethnology-AR 41, page 7.
Local Numbers:
NAA MS 4125
Local Note:
The last 5 Wichita texts, the Kichai translations, and a 16 page Kichai vocabulary were formerly filed under Manuscript Number 4137. They were added to Manuscript Number 4125 as of 6/1970.
