Crow Texts

This volume presents Crow oral texts covering a wide range of cultural topics as narrated by Elder Henrietta Pretty On Top, collected by Dorothea Kaschube in the 1950s, with word-by-word glosses. This format makes explicit the richness of Crow grammar as it is used in context. These texts will be of interest to anthropologists, linguists specializing in Siouan, typologists, and aficionados of oral narrative, as well as to speakers and learners of Crow and other Siouan languages.
