Excerpt from Contributions to Fox EthnologyThe information contained in the Indian text of this paper was obtained by Harry Lincoln from a reliable informant whose name is withheld, as it would diminish his social prestige owing to the very conservative character of the Fox Indians. Harry Lincoln was obliged to write out the information from memory only; and he subsequently dictated the text written in the current syllabary. The Indian text accordingly is restored by me according to his phonetics. It is proper to note that one or two sentences have been slightly modified by me to agree with what I conceive Fox grammar to be.The English translation is based on a paraphrase written out by George Young Bear, corrected and supplemented by a grammatical analysis of the Indian text by myself.A full list of all verbal stems is not given as I have previously (Fortieth Ann. Kept. Bur. Amer. Ethn., p. 616) published a list of Fox stems which contains nearly all those in the Indian text of the present paper. So I give only those which are not in the former list. For a similar reason only a few grammatical notes are given. But as the English translation is as close to the Indian original as is consistent with English idiomatic usage, with these helps the serious student will have little difficulty in working out the Indian text.I do not pretend that the information given in this volume on the "ceremonial runners" (or "ceremonial messengers") of the Fox Indians is as full as desirable in all particulars. At the same time it is much more than was previously known. The only reference of any importance on the ceremonial runners of the Fox Indians (Meskwakis) is the half page (61) by M. A. Owen, Folk-Lore of the Musquakie Indians. It is not clear whether Catlins remarks on the slave dance (North Amer. Indians, Ed. 1913, Vol. ii, pp. 241-242, and the accompanying plate) refer to the Sauk or the Fox Indians. It is highly probable that those of Galland on the ceremonial runners (Indian Tribes of the West, in Annals of Iowa, 1869, p. 350 et seq.) refer to the Sauk and not the Fox.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
