Scope and Contents:
Kickapoo texts and linguistic and ethnographic notes collected by Truman Michelson. Michelson worked with the Kickapoo on multiple occassions in Oklahoma, and these materials were likely collected during one of those trips. There are multiple Kickapoo texts, but only one is accompanied by an English translation, which looks to be incomplete. Among the untranslated texts is the story of the rabbit cycle. There are also some notes with information from Joseph Murdock, a Mexican Kickapoo who frequently assisted Michelson in his research.

Date:

Scope and Contents:
Ledger book of drawings, now disbound, with scenes of warfare, horse raiding, and a few of courting. The book contains drawings by multiple artists, probably both Lakota and Cheyenne, based on the events and war medicine depicted, esp. shield designs. Inscriptions in the volume give the history of acquisition and identify activities in each scene. The identifications are often in error regarding the nature of the scene and the tribal identity of the enemies.
Inscription on the final drawing, NAA INV 11013402, indicates that all explanations were provided by Charles C. White, also known as Fast Horse, former Sioux interpreter at Pine Ridge Agency.
