Natchez
Language(s): English
Date: 1840
Contributor: Unknown
Type:Text
Extent: 136 pages
Description: This account of the Natchez was written at Natchez in November 1840 and appears to convey oral history of the time. The unidentified author begins by stating “it was with extreme difficulty we succeeded in procuring the information.” The document touches on Natchez history and “manners, customs, [and] traditions.” The focus of the document is on their history, however, and much of the content was relayed to the author orally by Natchez consultants. There is an extended discussion of Natchez beliefs and practices. The document contains biographical data on prominent members of the Natchez and other native peoples, such as Pushmataha.
