The largest item (A1g.1, "Ottawa Indian manuscripts") is Jane Willets' (later Ettawageshik) manuscripts created in conjunction with her audio recordings of Ottawa stories and songs. (The audio recordings, Mss.Rec.1, "Ottawa material", are listed separately in this guide.) Includes words lists, traditional (Nanabojo), historical, and autobiographical stories, with interlinear translations. Eusebia Hunkins' material (item A1g.3) includes musical scores derived from the Willets/Ettawageshik recordings.
