Takelma | Umpqua
Language(s): Takelma | English
Date: 1977-2008
Extent: 3 linear feet
Description: The majority of Daythal Kendall's linguistic and ethnographic research was on Takelma, and so Takelma materials can be found throughout his collection. He built a large corpus of Takelma lexical items from sources including Edward Sapir's Takelma grammar (of which he hand-annotated many copies) and other works by W. H. Barnhardt, J. P. Harrington and others, some results of which were lexical slip files, in Series 8. From his dissertation in 1977 until the 2000s he worked on Takelma grammar and poetry, including many Coyote stories. There is a dedicated subseries to his research file for Takelma that reflects these. Extensive comparisons with other hypothesized Penutian languages can be found throughout, including in the correspondence Series 1. He also photographed Takelma baskets and the traditional Takelma landscape in several visits to the Takelma community, which can be found in Series 9.
