Tsimshian Texts

Franz Boas

Tsimshian Texts is a book written by Franz Boas, a prominent anthropologist and linguist, and is a collection of traditional stories and legends from the Tsimshian people of the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America. The Tsimshian are a First Nations people who have lived in the region for thousands of years, and their stories are an important part of their cultural heritage. The book is divided into two parts, with the first part containing the texts of the stories in the original Tsimshian language, along with translations into English. The second part of the book provides detailed linguistic and cultural analysis of the stories, including discussions of grammar, vocabulary, and the historical and cultural context in which the stories were told. The stories themselves are a fascinating glimpse into the world of the Tsimshian people, with tales of tricksters, heroes, and supernatural beings. Many of the stories are accompanied by illustrations and photographs, providing further insight into the visual culture of the Tsimshian people. Overall, Tsimshian Texts is a valuable resource for linguists, anthropologists, and anyone interested in the history and culture of the Pacific Northwest Coast. It provides a unique window into the rich and complex world of the Tsimshian people, and their enduring traditions and beliefs.Tsimshian Indian Myths From The Nass River Region Of British Columbia.
