In 1907, the Bureau of American Ethnology published Part I (972 pages) of the Handbook of American Indians North of Mexico and, in 1910, published Part II (1221 pages). This work which can be correctly characterized as monumental, was begun in 1873, and was completed in 1910, thirty-seven years later. The history of the undertaking is set forth in the Preface and need not be repeated here. As it contained an enormous amount of information relating to the Indians of Canada, geographical as well as ethnological, it was decided that the Geographic Board would republish this portion. Mr. F. W. Hodge having courteously accorded permission to reprint, the undersigned volunteered to supervise the publication. In publishing this work some changes have been made to bring the orthography into accord with English usage. Thus the 'u' has been inserted in such words as colour, favour, labour, etc. The forms discs, boulder, draughtsman, etc., were substituted for disks, bowlder, draftsman, etc. As, in the original publication, the articles respecting Treaties, Dept. of

Indian Affairs and Indian Reserves dealt almost altogether with the United States, new articles relative to Canadian conditions have been inserted, also a list of Indian reserves in Canada. Where in the original, minor errors of geographical description were noted, the corrections were inserted without special note but historical statements that the editor deemed erroneous are
corrected in foot-notes.

A new map showing the territory occupied by the Aborigines of Canada, Alaska and Greenland has been compiled by the editor. It is a revision of the map -prepared for the Atlas of Canada, 1906, but was printed before Mr. Stefansson's return from the Arctic. The information furnished by him, has, therefore, been noted in red by an over-printing. Maps showing the areas in which the Indian title has been quieted by treaties with the native inhabitants have been compiled for this volume. It is hoped that this work will form the basis of a more comprehensive publication which will deal with the Indians of Canada in greater detail than the
scope of the present work permits.

During the early exploration and settlement of North America, a multitude Indian tribes were encountered, having diverse customs and languages, Lack of knowledge of the aborigines and of their languages led to many curious errors on the part of the early explorers and settlers: names were applied to the Indians that had no relation whatever to their aboriginal names; sometimes nicknames were bestowed, owing perhaps to personal characteristics, fancied or real; sometimes tribes came to be known by names given by other tribes, which were often opprobrious; frequently the designation by which a tribal group was known to itself was employed, and as such names are oftentimes unpronounceable by alien tongues and unrepresentable by civilized alphabets, the result was a sorry corruption, varying according as the sounds were impressed on Spanish, English, French, Dutch, German, Russian, or Swedish ears. Sometimes, again, bands of a single tribe were given distinctive tribal names, while clans and gentes were often regarded as independent autonomous groups to which separate triba designations likewise were applied. Consequently, in the literature relating to the American Indians, which is practically coextensive with the literature of



three centuries of the

New World,

thousands of such names are recorded

the significance and application of which are to be understood only after


a comprehensive work on the subject has been felt ever since the Indians was first aroused. Many lists of tribes have been published, but the scientific student, as well as the general reader, until the present time has been practically without the means of knowing any more about a given confederacy, tribe, clan, or settlement of Indians than was to be gleaned from casual references to it. The work of which this Handbook is an outgrowth had its inception as early as 1873, when Prof. Otis T. Mason, now of the United States National Museum, began the preparation of a list of the tribal names mentioned in the vast literature pertaining to the Indians, and in due time several thousand names were recorded with references to the works in which they appear. The work was continued by him until after the establishment of the Bureau, when other duties compelled its suspension. Later, the task was assigned to Col. Garrick Mallery, who, however, soon abandoned it for investigations in a field which proved to be his life work, namely, the pictography and sign language of the American Indians.

based, with few exceptions,

Immediately on the completion of the linguistic classification, the entire force Mr. Henshaw's immediate direction, was assigned to the work that had now grown into a Dictionary and Synonymy of the Indian Tribes North of Mexico. As his special field Mr. Henshaw devoted attention to several of the Californian stocks, and to those of the North Pacific coast, north of Oregon, including the Eskimo. To Mr. Mooney were given the great and historically important Algonquian and Iroquoian families, and through his wide general knowledge of Indian history and customs he rendered aid in many other directions.

The 2,500 tribal names and synonyms appearing in this list were taken chiefly from Mr. Mooney 's manuscript; the linguistic classification was the result of the work that the Bureau had been conducting under Mr. Henshaw's
octavo), was at once printed for use

Rev. J. Owen Dorsey assumed charge of the work on the Siouan, Caddoan, and Athapascan stocks; Dr. W. J. Hoffman, under the personal direction of Major Powell, devoted his energies to the Shoshonean family, and Mr. Jeremiah Curtin, by reason of his familiarity with a number of the Californian tribes, rendered direct aid to Mr. Henshaw in that field. Dr. Albert S. Gatschet employed his time and long experience in the preparation of the material pertaining to the Muskhogean tribes of southeastern United States, the Yuman tribes of the lower Colorado drainage and of Lower California, and various smaller linguistic groups. To Col. Garrick Mallery were assigned the French authors bearing on the general subject. With such aid the work received a pronounced impetus, and before the close of 1885 a large body of additional material had been recorded. Four years later the elaboration of the material pertaining to the Yuman, Piman, Keresan, Tanoan, and Zunian stocks of the extreme Southwest was placed in charge of Mr. F. W. Hodge, who brought it to

as Mr. Henshaw had in course of preparation, a classification and nomenclature of the minor divisions of the linguistic stocks, which is essential to a propei presentation and a clear understanding of the subject. After Mr. Henshaw's relinquishment of the work, Mr. Hodge was given entire charge of it. But other official duties of members of the staff prevented the Handbook as a whole from making marked progress until 1899, when Dr. Cyrus Thomas was intrusted with the task of revising the recorded material bearing on the Algonquian, Siouan, and Muskhogean families. In 1902 the work on the Handbook was again systematically taken up, at the instance of Secretary Langley, who detailed Mr, Hodge, at that time con-

nected immediately with the Smithsonian Institution, to undertake its general The scope of the subject-matter wa,s enlarged to include editorial supervision. the relations between the aborigines and the Government; their archaeology, manners, customs, aits, and industries; brief biographies of Indians of note;

Moreover, it was provided that the work should be illustrated as adequately as time and the illustrative material available would admit, a feature not originally contemplated. To fully cover this vast field at the present time h impossible, by reason of the fact that research among the native tribes, notwithstanding the extensive and important work that has been accomplished in recent years, has not advanced far beyond the first stage, even when is taken into account the sum of knowledge derived from the researches of the Bureau and of other institutions, as well as

The lack of completeness of our present knowledge of the tribes was, perhaps never better shown than when an attempt was made to carry out the enlarged plan of the Handbook. With its limited force the Bureau could scarcely hope to cover the entire range of the subject within a reasonable time; consequently various specialists not directly connected with the Bureau were invited to assist
an invitation that was accepted in a manner most gratifying. It is owing to the generous aid of these students that a work so complete as the Handbook is

made possible, and, to them, the Bureau owes its deep appreThat the Handbook has many imperfections there is no doubt, but it is hoped that in future editions the weak points may be strengthened and the gaps filled, until, as researches among the tribes are continued, the compilation will eventually represent a complete summary of existing knowledge respecting

For example, there were captured two white pei'sons (sisters) by the Seneca, and instead of both being adopted into one clan, one was adopted by the Deer and the other by the Heron clan, and thus the blood of the two sisters was changed by the rite of adoption in such wise that their children could intermarry. Furthermore, to satisfy the underlying concept of the rite, the adopted person must be brought into one of the strains

Tribes, v. 536, 1855) includes the term in his list of words of Indian origin. The word seems to be formed arbitrarily from Alg, a part of Algonkin, and the English adjectival termination

and eels [from the bow of a canoe]'). A term applied originally to the Weskarini, a small Algonquian tribe formerly living on the present Gatineau r., a tributary of Ottawa r., E. of the present city of Ottawa, in Quebec. Later the name was used to include also the Amikwa, Kichesipirini, Kinonche, Kisakon, Maskasinik, Matawachkirini, Missisauga, Michaconbidi Nikikouek, Ononchataronon, Oskemanitigou, Ouasouarini, Outaouakamigouk, Outchougai, Powating, Sagahiganirini, and Sagnitaounigama. French writers sometimes called the Montagnais encountered along the lower St. Lawrence, the Lower Algonquins, because they spoke the same language; and the ethnic stock and family of languages has been named from the Algonkin, who formed a close alliance with the French at the first settlement of Canada and received their help against the Iroquois. The latter, however, afterward procured firearms and soon forced the Algonkin to abandon the St Lawrence region. Some of the bands on Ottawa r. fled W. to Mackinaw and into Michigan, where they consolidated and became known under the modern name of Ottawa. The others fled to the N. and E., beyond reach of the Iroquois, but gradually found their way back and reoccupied the country. Their chief gathering place and mission statim was at Three Rivers, in Quebec Nothing is known of their social organization. The bands now recognized as Algonkin, with" their population in 1900, are as follows. In Ottawa: Golden Lake, 86; North Renfrew, In Que286; Gibson (Iroquois in part), 123. bec: River Desert, 393; Timiskaming, 203; Lake of Two Mountains (Iroquois in part), 447; total, 1,536.

As a

rule the relations of the

French with the Algonquian tribes were friendly, the Foxes being the only tribe against whom
they waged war. The English settlements were often engaged in border wars with their Algonquian neighbours, who, continually pressed farther toward the interior by the advancing white immigration, kept up for a time a futile
struggle for the possession of their territory.

Government; then began the series of treaties by which, within thirty years, most of the Indians of this region ceded their lands and removed W. of the Mississippi. A factor which contributed greatly to the decline of the Algonquian ascendency was the power of the Iroquoian confederacy, which by the beginning of the 17th century had developed a power destined to make them the scourge of the other Indian populations from the Atlantic to the Mississippi and from Ottawa r. in Canada to the Tennessee. After destroying the Huron and the Erie, they turned their power chiefly against the Algonquian tribes, and ere long Ohio and Indiana were nearly deserted, only a few villages of Miami remaining here and there in the northern portion. The region S. and W. they made a desert, clearing of native inhabitants the whole country within 500 m. of their seats. The Algonquian

The eastern tribes, from Maine to Carolina, were defeated and their tribal organization was broken up, Some withdrew to Canada, others crossed the mountains into the Ohio valley, while a few bands were located on reservations by the whites, only to dwindle and ultimately become extinct. Of many of the smaller tribes of New England, Virginia, and other eastern states there are no living representatives.
Even the languages of some are known only by a few words mentioned by early historians, while some tribes are known only by name. 'The Abnaki and others who fled into Canada

upper lakes and the banks of the Mississippi, and only when the French had guaranteed them protection against their deadly foes did they venture to turn back toward the E. The central Algonquians are tall, averaging about 173 cm.; they have the typical Indian nose, heavy and prominent, somewhat hooked in men, flatter in women; their cheek bones are heavy; the head among the tribes of the Great lakes is very large and almost brachycephalic, but showing considerable variation; the face The type of the Atlantic coast is very large. Algonquians can hardly be determined from living individuals, as no full-bloods survive, but skulls found in old burial grounds show that they were tall, their faces not quite so broad, the heads much more elongate and remarkably high, resembling in this respect the Eskimo and suggesting the possibihty that on the New England coast there may have been some mixture with that type. The Cheyenne and Arapaho are even taller than the central Algonquians; their faces are larger, their heads more elongate. It is worthy of remark that in the region in which the mound builders' remains are found, rounded heads prevailed, and the present population of the region are also more round-headed, perhaps suggesting
fusion of blood (Boas, inf'n, 1905).

Tecumseh and his brother,Ellskwatawa, aroused
the western tribes against the United States a few
years later, but the disastrous defeat at Tippe-

As Manibozho, or Michabo, among the Chippewa and other Uke tribes, he was usually identified as a fabulous great rabbit, bearing some relation to the sun; and this identification with the great rabbit appears to have prevailed among other tribes, being found as far S. as Maryland. Brinton (Hero Myths, 1882) beheves this mythological animal to have been merely a symbol of light, adopted because of the similarity between the Algonquian words Among the Siksika this for rabbit and light. chief beneficent deity was known as Napiw, among the Abnaki as Ketchiniwesk, among the New England tribes as Kiehtan, Woonand, Cautantowit, etc. He it was who created the world by magic power, peopled it with game and the other animals, taught his favorite people the arts of the chase, and gave them corn and beans.

in some cases was by the heads of other clans or gentes. The tribe also had its chief, usually selected from a particular clan or gens, though the manner of choosing a chief and the authority vested in him varied somewhat in the different tribes. This was the peace chief, whose authority was not absolute, and who had no part in the declaration of war or in carrying it on, the leader in the campaign being one who had acquired a right to the position by noted deeds and skill. In some tribes the title of chief was hereditary, and the distinction between a peace chief and a war chief was not observed. The chief's power among some tribes, as the Miami, were greater than in others. The government was directed in weighty matters by a council,

There was a general belief in a soul, shade, or immortal spiritual nature not only in man but in animals and all other things, and in a spiritual abode to which this soul went after the death of the body, and in which the occupations and enjoyments were supposed to be similar to those of this life.
