Iroquois-Language Manuscripts, ca. 1768-1803: The Samuel Kirkland Papers

By Samuel Kirkland, Clifford Abbott and Karim M. Tiro


A comprehensive collection of more than thirty Iroquois language documents from the Samuel Kirkland Papers at Hamilton College. Dating from 1768-1803, these manuscripts have been transcribed, transliterated, and translated, many for the first time. The volume includes line-by-line photographic illustrations of each letter, along with the translator’s work. Each document is then given in full facsimile, and full translation. Introductory essays by the compilers examine Iroquois literacy and linguistics as illustrated by the documents. 358 pages
