Excerpt

The first Indian text (p. 20 et seq.) was written in the current syllabic script about 15 years ago by Alfred Kiyana. The first few pages are restored according to the phonetics of Thomas Scott, the remainder according to those of Harry Lincoln. The English translation is based on an English translation written by Tom Brown, a Sauk of Oklahoma. This has been slightly modified to agree with what I conceive Fox grammar to be. Some grammatical notes secured from Harry Lincoln were most useful in analyzing the Indian text and indirectly showed the accuracy of Brown's original translation.

The second Indian text was written in the syllabic script a few years ago by a member of the Bear gens who desires to remain anonymous. He is the author of the Indian original of the second account of the Thunder Dance of the Bear Gens in Bulletin 89 of the Bureau of American Ethnology. The English translation is based on a paraphrase written by Horace Poweshiek, corrected and supplemented by a grammatical analysis of the text. Some linguistic notes, based on the text, obtained from Harry Lincoln, were most helpful in this. The syllabic text was restored according to his phonetics.

The third Indian text was written in the current syllabic script by Jim Peters and restored according to the phonetics of Harry Lincoln. The English translation is based on a paraphrase written by Horace Poweshiek, supplemented and corrected by a grammatical analysis by myself. Some linguistic notes obtained from Harry Lincoln have also proved helpful.

The fourth Indian text was written in the syllabic script by Sam Peters (son of Jim Peters); it is restored according to the phonetics of Harry Lincoln. The English translation is based on a paraphrase written by Horace Poweshiek, supplemented and corrected by an analysis of the text by myself.
