"The present volume represents an effort to bring together biographical sketches of some of the most outstanding North American Indian intellectuals of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries--individuals who for the most part made lasting contributions to the enterprise of anthropology, although a few were more involved politically, or as writers, than they were scientific scholars. They represent a wide range of kinds of human beings--from different historical periods, different educational and tribal backgrounds, and very different views of the world surrounding them, as well as personal roles played within it."--Page 1

Omaha : NQ21( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Omaha collection covers a variety of cultural, historical and environmental information on different sections of Omaha society from pre-contact times to early 2000s. The work of Alice Fletcher, an anthropologist who lived with the Omaha for thirty years in 1875-1905, and Francis La Flesche, a native Omaha, is the basic and most comprehensive document in the collection. The collection also includes two works by a missionary/anthropologist, James Dorsey, who worked among the Omaha in 1878-1980. Together, these works provide the earliest systematic attempts at understanding and reconstructing pre-reservation Omaha society and culture. The remaining documents describe and examine more specific aspects of Omaha culture including acculturation with particular reference to women, religious life and organization of secret societies, and recent dynamics of ethnicity and identity especially among current generation Omaha peoples in Nebraska
Cheyenne memories by John Stands In Timber( )

11 editions published between 1967 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic work is an oral history of the Cheyenne Indians from legendary times to the early reservation years, a collaborative effort by the Cheyenne tribal historian, John Stands in Timber, and anthropologist Margot Liberty. Published in 1967, the book now has an updated bibliography and a new preface by Liberty, in which she shares her recollections of Stands in Timber and describes the circumstances of the Cheyenne over the past thirty years.Stands in Timber was born in 1882, a few years after his grandfather was killed in the Custer battle. In this book he recounts tribal myths and sacred rituals, conflict with traditional enemies and whites, and eventual "civilization" and settlement on a reservation. The retelling of Cheyenne traditions formed an important part of Stands in Timber's life from early childhood, and on his return from school in 1905 he became the primary keeper of the oral literature of his people, seeking out every elder who could contribute personal memories to Cheyenne lore. In 1956 he met Margot Liberty, then an Indian Affairs Bureau teacher, who helped him tape-record more than thirty hours of recollections. From these she compiled this unique and lively folk history, one based on a longtime inside view that can never be duplicated."This is an extraordinarily fascinating book, . . . a book that all Americans, Indians as well as non-Indians, will treasure."--Alvin M. Josephy, Jr
