Description: The Haida material in the ACLS collection consists of numerous materials that are primarily located in the "Haida" section of the finding aid. See this section for a complete listing. Prominent materials in this section includes Swanton's typescript draft versions of Haida stories from both Masset and Skidegate, recorded in 1900-1902. These versions are in Haida only, with some handwritten annotations, corrections, and English titles. Many were published, though not all. Notably, these manuscript include the Haida version of stories published in English only in Swanton's "Haida Texts and Myths--Skidegate dialect." Also included in this section are lexical files by Boas and Sapir derived from Boas and Swanton's materials. In the "Athapaskan" section of the finding aid, see Sapir's "Comparative Na-Dene dictionary," which includes extensive Haida material. In the "Chinook" section of the finding aid, see Boas' "Field notes on Chinookan and Salishan languages and Gitamat, Molala, and Masset," which includes vocabularies recorded in 1890, likely in Victoria, from a Haida speaker from Masset. In the "Tlingit" section of the finding aid, see Swanton's "Tlingit and Haida word list," including Haida vocabulary recorded at Howkan, Klinkwan, and Kassan.

The first volume contains a collection of multiple comparative vocabulary lists of languages of modern-day Washington, Idaho, Oregon, British Columbia, and Alaska, obtained by dictation from native speakers, people of mixed ancestry, and traders of the Hudson's Bay Company. Languages included are: "Okanagan" (N̓səl̓xcin), "Attnaha" or "Shoushwap" (Secwepemctsin), "Walla Walla (Sahaptin), "Squalyamish" (Squamish / Sḵwx̱wú7mesh ?), "Nooselalum" (Klallam / nəxʷsƛ̕ay̕əm), "Haeeltzuk" (Heiltsuk), "Billichoola" (Nuxalk), "Nass" (Nisga'a), "Haidah" (Haida), "Tongaase" (Tlingit, possibly inland variety), Nez Perce, Chinook [Jargon], "Carrier or Takelhé" (Dakelh), "Kayouse" (Cayuse), and "Kootenai" (Ktunaxa). The second volume is a collection of vocabulary lists of 19 Indigenous languages, primarily of the Pacific Northwest, re-copied from earlier notes in an orderly fashion with an index and additional introductory information on the area where each language is spoken and the source of the vocabulary. 15 of the vocabularies are re-copied out from the first volume in this collection. This volume includes the languages listed for that volume, plus Cree (possibly Plains Cree), "Kalapooyah" (Kalapuya), Klikatat (Sahaptin or Yakama), and "Seauteux" (Western Ojibwa/Ojibwe).

Haida
Language(s): English | Haida
Date: circa 1985
Subject: Linguistics
Type:Text
Genre: Essays
Extent: 2 items
Description: This item consists of two essays on Haida linguistics, the titular "Theme in Haida" and "More on word order in Haida." Linguist Elizabeth A. Edwards based both essays on data collected during research supported by a Penrose Fund grant from the American Philosophical Society. "Theme in Haida" is a 19-page paper on "the ordering of thematic constituents in sentences of Haida discourse and narrative." The second item, "More on word order in Haida," is a 21-page paper on the ordering of nominal constituents. Both essays were written while Edwards was at the University of Washington. The title of the second appears to be a play on an article by Edwards' mentor at Washington, Carolyn M. Eastman, whose "Haida Word Order" appeared in the International Journal of American Linguistics in 1979. Edwards acknowledged the assistance of Lillian Pettviel as her primary language consultant. Note that each essay has a distinct call number, and must be requested individually.
