Description
Summary:This collection of 8 documents primarily describes the traditional culture of the Gros Ventre, an Algonkian-speaking Native American group, from approximately the mid-nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth. Historically the Gros Ventre were a nomadic people ranging widely on the Great Plains. In 1888 they were moved to the Fort Belknap Reservation in northern Montana, the locale of most of the field work in this collection. The basic documents in this collection, which give a general over-view of the traditional culture, are Kroeber (1901) and Flannery (1953), supplemented by the concise culture summary in Fowler and Flannery. Cooper (1956) is an analysis of religion and ritual as he observed it during his fieldwork between 1931 and 1940. Fowler (1987) is a study of the contemporary Gros Ventre at the Fort Belknap Reservation with a focus on cultural identity and the different ways it is manifested in their society. This study also provides information on the relationship of the Gros Ventre to Euro-American society, with other tribal groups in the region, and between generations in their own society. Two linguistic studies in this collection, deal with the slightly different phonetic system and speech patterns used by males and females in Gros Ventre society (Taylor; Flannery).
