Number 11 "Notes on Songs, Mythology & Language of the Pai-Utes, 1872"

Collection Creator:
Powell, John Wesley, 1834-1902  Search this
Container:
Box 2
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1872
Scope and Contents:
Additional vocabulary, grammatical notes and song texts in a Southern Paiute dialect of Ute, with myths in English. Numbers 4 and 11 together have approximately 238 pages. The pages of volumes 4 and 11 were transferred from No. 2247, where they were found intermingled. The volume to which these materials pertain is in doubt. Note that there is an entry in the manuscript list of the First Annual Report, Bureau of American Ethnology, page 574, as follows: "Notes on the Songs, Mythology, and Language of the Pai-Utes, 1871-'72. 194 page folio." Except for the size, this would seem to refer to volumes 4 and 11 of the journals, whose contents were combined.
