Rachel Commons' field notes include Vocabularies, ethnographic notes (including a map), and some linguistic text. In the "Salish" section of the finding aid, Teit's "Songs from the Salish area" include notes on 80 songs (some of which are Syilx) recorded for and sent to the National Museum of Canada (now the Canadian Museum of History.) In this same section, Teit's "Field notes or Thompson and neighboring Salish languages" consists of numerous notebooks, which partially include some ethnographic notes on Syilx matters.
