Description : American linguistics has a tradition of finding unique and important insights from studies of Native American languages, often leading to innovations in current theories. At the same time, research on Native languages has been enhanced by the perspectives of modern theory. This book extends this tradition by presenting original analyses of aspects of six Native languages of Canada—Algonquin, Athapaskan, Eskimo, Iroquoian, Salishan, and Siouan. Addressing problems relevant to phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics, the authors make both descriptive and theoretical contributions by presenting data that has not been previously published or treated from the viewpoint of contemporary theory.

These papers are essential reading for those interested in Algonquian world views, cultures, history, and languages. They build bridges among a large international group of people who write in different disciplines.

Description : "This is an edition and translation of an autobiographical account written in the Meskwaki language by a Meskwaki woman in the second decade of the twentieth century. The writer's name was "withheld by agreement", and her identity is not known. She lived on the Meskwaki Settlement in Tama County, Iowa, and was apparently in her late middle age when she wrote the account in 1918. She uses no names of people or places, and the most concrete clue to who she was is her mention of the drum society she joined with her second husband. This has been taken to refer to events of October, 1896, when a drum with the associated Drum Dance worship was brought to the Meswakis by Wisconsin Potawatomis. The Meskwaki historian Charley H. Chuck gave the names of the first Meskwakis to join this drum, but a review of this information with the late Adeline Wanatee established that none of the women he named had life histories that match that of the writer."-- Introduction.

Description : "This is an edition and translation of an account of the Owl Sacred Pack which was written in the Meskwaki language by the owner of the pack, Alfred Kiyana, to accompany its transfer to Truman Michelson in 1914. Meskwaki is an Algonquian language now spoken in Tama County, Iowa... Kiyana was a superb story-teller, whose skill in employing the Meskwaki language can only be fully appreciated by repeated study of his texts. He attended school for only three months, and that was by running away to Kansas, and his English was rudimentary. He died in the Spanish Influenza pandemic in November of 1918."-- Introduction.

Description : The Miami-Illinois Language reconstructs the language spoken by the Miami and the Illinois Native Americans. During the latter half of the seventeenth century both Native communities lived in the region to the south of Lake Michigan in present-day Illinois and Indiana. The French and Indian War, followed in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries by massive influxes of white settlers into the Ohio River Valley, proved disastrous for both Native groups. Reduced in number by warfare and disease, the Illinois (now called the Peorias) along with half of the Miamis relocated first to Kansas and then to northeast Oklahoma, while the other half of the Miamis remained in northern Indiana. ø The Miami and the Illinois Native Americans speak closely related dialects of a language of the Algonquian language family. Linguist David J. Costa reconstructs key elements of their language from available historical sources, close textual analysis of surviving stories, and comparison with related Algonquian languages. The result is the first overview of the Miami-Illinois language.
