Scope and Contents:
A collection of ethnographic and linguistic notes from diverse sources, aiming at an understanding of problems of reading Mayan hieroglyphic characters. Most of the notes cover Mayan vocabulary and glyphs, but Gatschet ranges almost at random over other data, ethnographic and linguistic, that may have caught his interest. He touches on the Maya calendar, day names, Landa's alphabet, Maya-Spanish vocabulary from the Motul dictionary at Providence, similar vocabulary from Brasseur, etc., some Narraganset-English vocabulary (page 57 only) from Williams, notes on day signs from Rosny, etc., cultural objects compared with glyphic designs, Brasseur's synonymy of glyph characters, lists of Southeast tribes from a French source, Otomi vocabulary notes especially on the numerals (see pages 84-85), notes on Cariban and Arawakan, etymologies of Mayan words (pages 110, 111), notes from Brinton's Maya Chronicles, notes on Codices Mendoza, Troano, Tellerano-Remensis, notes from Penafiel, Pinart, etc., names of Aztec and Mayan gods, etc. No problems are settled, nor is any problem carefully attended: the notes are all preliminary. H. Landar 7 July, 1969.

Place:
Africa, East

Date:
circa 1930
Scope and Contents:
Footage shot during a hunting expedition to east Africa including Uganda, Kenya, Egypt, and the Sudan. Footage includes: shipboard ritual of "crossing the equator," passage through the Suez Canal, a local ceremony staged for visitors by Acholi tribesmen, Kikuyu dance, monumental Egyptian sculpture and architecture, and various hunting activities and camps of the safari. A significant feature of this safari footage is the stereotyped interactions of dominance and subordination between African bearers and the wazungu, the local term for Europeans.

Collection contains supplementary materials, namely, sound recordings and annotations (recorded narratives).

Legacy keywords: Ceremony crossing the equator ; Ceremony "engoma" ; Dancing drums ; Adornment headdress ; Architecture monumental ; Sculpture monumental Temple of Abdul Smaal ; Writing pictographic hieroglyphics ; Pottery pottery wheel ; Settlements residential enclosure boma ; Hunting safari native bearers ; Language and culture ; Tourism ; Dance ; Music ; Instruments musical instruments ; Cruise ships ; Kikuyu (African people) ; Acoli (African people)
