Analytical and Critical Bibliography of the Tribes of Tierra del Fuego and Adjacent Territory

AUTHOR BIBLIOGRAPHY

PREFATORY NOTES

The bibliography includes the sources for the study of the Onas, Yahgans, Alacaluf, and Chonos. Those for the Tehuelches might have been included, but to have done so would have carried the writer too far afield.

Throughout, anthropological and kindred literature occur hundreds of brief second-hand notes on the Fuegians. The bulk of these references were too unimportant to justify their inclusion in the present bibliography. But all first-hand sources, however brief and unimportant, that have come to the writer's attention, have been included, as have also those second-hand sources which sum up a considerable portion of the field or else throw some light on Fuegian and Chonoan anthropology by discussion or suggestion.

Where the writer has been unable to consult and review personally any article or book, he has stated the bibliography or other source whence the title has been taken, together with what dependable data regarding the reference he could gather.

The great majority of first-hand observers have had at most a few hours of contact with the natives while en route through the archipelago. Such accounts have been characterized as based on "casual meetings." They are chiefly of value for material culture.

The name "Channel Alacaluf" or "Channel Indians" has been used to denote the canoe-using Indians of the West Patagonian channels between the western mouth of the Strait of Magellan and the Gulf of Peñas.

The present bibliography being intended as a practical or working guide, some of the data usually given in a technical bibliography have been omitted.

From the enormous mass of literature dealing with the history of early exploration in the Magellanic archipelago, those narratives, editions, and translations--originals preferred where accessible--have been included which would be more readily available to the student with ordinary library facilities. No attempt has been made to exhaust this field. Further data regarding editions and translations can be found in bibliographical works like those of Tiele, Sabin, and Medina. Those early narratives, like LeMaire's, for instance, which, however important to the geographer or historian, contain no information on the natives, have been omitted.
