Description: The Coeur d'Alene materials in the ACLS collection consist mainly of 3 items in the "Coeur d'Alene" section of the finding aid. One is Reichard's "Coeur d'Alene Indian texts," containing 51 texts without translations. Two items recorded by James Teit consist of Coeur d'Alene vocabularies, some relating to material culture and religion. In the "Nlaka'pamux" section of the finding aid, Teit's "Field notes or Thompson and neighboring Salish languages" includes some Coeur d'Alene information, though the extent is undetermined as these notebooks have not yet been fully indexed. "Suffixes in Thompson" contains some incidental Coeur d'Alene terms written in.
