The preparation for print and digital publication of five volumes of previously unpublished field notes about four native tribes of the American Great Plains, collected by anthropologists in the 19th and early 20th centuries. (36 months)

This project focuses on a large body of unpublished works that document the cultures of four major American Indian tribes of the Great Plains: the Pawnee, Arikara, Hidatsa, and Mandan. Those documentary collections are unique in that they provide detailed descriptions of those tribes' cultures and languages that were recorded in the late-19th and early-20th centuries in the words of prominent members who lived those cultures or remembered what their parents and grandparents told them. With the publication of extant documentary records made by early anthropologists, tribal members will gain a more sophisticated knowledge and appreciation of their cultural and historical heritage, and scholars and the public will be able to develop a better understanding of native cultures that have been largely overlooked in the literature on, and the public image of, Plains Indians.
