Description: During Haas' residence in Eufaula, Oklahoma, Haas recorded a variety of languages spoken in the area, including a small amount of Kickapoo. Original field notes can be found in Series 2 Subseries ‘Multiple Languages', and includes a basic lexicon and imperative and interrogative verbs. Haas received lexica from Douglas Parks, who worked with consultant Alice Abraham in Shawnee, Oklahoma, and it is possible that Haas also visited Alice Abraham. These are represented in Series 2 Subseries ‘Kickapoo' and ‘Multiple Languages', and as card files in Series 9. She also received original and photocopied field notes from Paul H. Voorhis, consisting of a 174-item lexicon with associated words and phrases, in Series 2 Subseries ‘Kickapoo'.
