The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library is pleased to announce that we have acquired and digitized a rare 19th century Mi’kmaq (Micmac) liturgical manuscript. The prayers are written chiefly in hieroglyphic script, with a few lines including interlinear transliteration in Latin script. Full resolution JPEG images of this extraordinary document are available from Beinecke’s digital library. Images are openly and freely accessible:
Welcome to H-AmIndian!
Welcome to H-AmIndian, a joint project between Arizona State University and H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine. H-AmIndian provides a forum for scholars, academicians, and Native peoples to consider the history, culture, ideas and events relating to Indigenous peoples from the North Pole to Mexico.
I'm an historian traveling to the U.S. from Europe in March to do some research at NARA Ft. Worth and the Oklahoma Historical Society. I was wondering 1) if anyone had any advice on inexpensive accomodations near the archives for either (or both) locations, and 2) if there were any general notes from those who have worked in these archives on what to expect.
Thank you very much,
The Pacific Historical Review recently published the following articles that may interest H-AmIndian list subscribers:
-"The Blue Flower and the Account Book: Writing a History of Mixed-Blood Americans," by Anne Hyde.
Thanks all, some amazing suggestions. I read a few of those (and had forgotten how relevant they are!) but others are unknown territory.
Deadline: March 15, 2016
