BIBLIOGRAPHY

NOTE: The printed version of this book is in a very basic typescript with all of the diacritical marks

and IPA symbols added by hand. This resulted in some symbols that were nearly illegible. As I am not
fluent in Navajo orthography, especially the more complicated premodern systems, some of the
transcriptions may be slightly wrong. Also, there was a page of errata which has been silently
incorporated into this version along with a few other minor typographical corrections.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

Foremost among those whose help must be acknowledged is Frank Goldtooth. This
is really his book\u2014his and the Navaho\u2019s. His patience, understanding and friendship
will be long remembered. To his sons, Teddy, Keith, Emerson and Herbert, go my
thanks for their friendship and for their cheerful interpreting for so many tedious
hours. Knowledge taken from many years experience on the reservation was
generously given to me by Ed Kerley and Ed Stocks. To my parents and to my brother
and his wife, Dr. and Mrs. Kenneth O. Fishler, I owe many thanks for their help in so
many ways. My wife has also helped in innumerable ways during the various stages
of preparation of the paper.

I wish to express my appreciation to Professors E. Adamson Hoebel and Elmer R.
Smith for suggestions and criticisms of the manuscript. I am indebted to Father Berard
Haile who took time from his busy schedule to work several hours on the majority of
transcriptions of Navaho terms and make other important suggestions. The phonetic
system used by Father Haile in PRAYER STICK CUTTING in a Five Night Navaho

Ceremonial of the Male Branch of the Shootingway is used herein.
