Container Title
Series: Native Language Teaching Materials
Scope and Content Note: This series contains records pertaining to the specific Native languages and is arranged alphabetically by language name. The largest group of materials can be found for the Menominee and Ojibwa languages. Many of the records consists of teaching materials, including alphabet and syllable books, handouts, language supplement books, self-tests, writing practice lessons, workshop lessons, songs, and stories. The series also includes student cards, which provide the name of the student, tribe, parent's tribe, grade level, age, Native speakers in household and their relation to the student. For each language, there are lexicons or vocabularies. The vocabularies, which contain the English and Native American words, are on note cards. The Menominee and Winnebago records include Ken Miner's notebooks (photocopied) on the languages. Miner was a Menominee linguistic specialist hired by UWM as part of a sub-contract made with the GLITC. The Menominee records include a complete copy of Leonard Bloomfield's lexicon, as well as indexes to his work.
