The Nisenan materials in the ACLS collection consist of two items in the "Maidu" section of the finding aid. One is a set of 71 "folkloristic texts" (item P2.1) recorded by Hans Uldall with interlinear translations and accompanying linguistic and ethnographic notes. (Some of this material is potentially culturally sensitive and may be restricted.) The second item is Uldall's "Maidu grammar" (item P2.2), which includes verb morphology, suffixes expressing concrete relations, anaphoric stems, verbal theme, grammatical processes, the verb, gender, and cases.
