Description: The Nez Perce materials in the ACLS collection consist of several items, primarily found in the "Nez Perce" section of the finding aid. Noteworthy materials include 1897 field notes by Livingston Farrand, 2 notebooks of Archie Phinney recorded at Fort Lapwai with his mother Wayilatpu, and grammatical analyses by Swadesh and Velten. There is also an extensive "Sahaptin lexicon," based largely upon Phinney's published "Nez Perce texts" (1934). In the "Cayuse" section of the finding aid, Swadesh's "Cayuse interlinear texts" (section Ps1a.1) are in the Niimi'ipuutímt language as told by Gilbert Minthorne, including one text later published by Jarold Ramsey as "Fish Hawk's Raid Against the Sioux" (in the book "Coming To Light: Contemporary Translations of the Native Literatures of North America", ed. Brian Swann, 1994, Vintage Books, New York). In the "Quinault" section, a small number Farrand's notebooks may contain some Nez Perce texts in English. Identification within the notebooks is unclear.
