Description: The Clackamas materials in the ACLS collection include two items in the "Clackamas" section of the finding aid: a 2-page fragment of a Clackamas-English vocabulary (item Pn4a.1), and a brief slip file containing kinship terms (item Pn4a.7). Two notebooks recorded by Franz Boas in 1890 which partially contain Clackamas texts and vocabularies are found in "Field notes on Chinookan and Salishan languages and Gitamat, Molala, and Masset" (item Pn4b.5) in the "Chinook" section of the finding aid. In the "Kathlamet" section, the larger "Kathlamet lexicon" (item Pn4a.2) includes some comparative Clackamas terms.
