Linguistic and Cultural Affiliations of Canadian Indian Bands.
Neville, G. W., Comp.
Ten linguistic groups of Canadian Indians composed of a number of subgroups speaking related languages or dialects have been determined. Six major cultural areas (geographic) have been identified by cultural characteristics and linguistic affiliation of their inhabitants. Tables for each Canadian province identify Canadian Indians by band or community and indicate population figures as of January 1, 1970. The tables also identify the linguistic groups to which each band belongs and the native languages or dialects and cultural areas with which each band is historically associated. Population distribution and corresponding linguistic identification are shown on maps of each province. (JH)
