Alternate forms: Ojibwa, Ojibway, Oji-Cree
Date: 1957-2017
Extent: 2.75 linear feet
Description: Almost all of the Charles E. Fiero Papers reflect varieties of Ojibwe/Anishinaabemowin. Fiero, a missionary linguist, is best known within the field for creating the double-vowel orthography. Series I (the bulk) contains manuscripts, while Series II contains a small volume of digital media that has yet to be transferred. The collection represents fieldwork originally done between 1957 and 1993 (bulk 1957-1970s), chronologically arranged by date of first fieldwork, and contains many retranscriptions and reanalyses by Fiero from subsequent decades, illustrating his understanding of the material. The fieldnotes mostly comprise lexica and texts, and individual folders typically contain detailed background information. Fieldwork was mostly conducted in Ontario. Place names include: Berens River, Deer Lake, Pauingassi, Pikangikum, Poplar Hill, Red Lake, White Earth, Cat Lake, Doghole Bar, Fort Hope, Grassy Narrows, McDowell Lake, North Spirit Lake, and Pickle Lake.

Tohono O'odham
Language(s): Tohono O'odham | English
Date: 1974-1993
Extent: 0.25 linear feet
Description: The majority of the materials (all manuscripts and several audiocassettes) in the Jan Bruckner Papers relate to the Tohono O'odham language and reservation. They were produced from an effort to create Tohono O'odham vocabulary to facilitate physical therapy sessions, while Bruckner (a physical therapist) was working at Sells Indian Hospital, Tohono O'odham Reservation, between 1982 and 1992. There is a binder and some classroom handouts with medical vocabulary, commercial maps and other printed materials, and audiocassette recordings of language classrooms and of lexica and phrases recorded by primarily John Miguel. The entire collection has been digitized and is available in the Digital Library, via the collection finding aid.
