Description: Materials from a wide range of indigenous cultures around the world are scattered throughout Series V of the A. Irving Hallowell Papers. Hallowell was interested in comparative ethnology on a number of topics including Bear Ceremonialism, textiles, artistic representations of Native people, basketry, kinship, pre-history, the development of language, family and marriage, nets and netting, etc. Much of this material constitutes Hallowell's reading notes on secondary sources and his research for very broad-based studies of humanity. Geographic regions represented in Series V include Australia, Africa, Pacific Islands, Polar regions California, Northwest coast, Southwest, and Southeast. The correspondence, in Series I, includes a very interesting, brief description of Franz Boas' first visit to the Kwakwaka'wakw community of Fort Rupert by the daughter of George Hunt in a folder labled Ronald Rohmer. There is also a letter from Edward Sapir detailing Nuu-chah-nulth bear hunting and face painting as well as sketches of netting needles.

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.
