The Subarctic Athabascans. A Selected Annotated Bibliography.
Hippler, Arthur E.; Wood, John R.
One in a series of selected, annotated bibliographies on Alaska Native groups, this work is intended primarily as a research tool for those concerned with the subarctic Indians of North America. Emphasis is on references dating from 1744 to 1972, of a general or cultural anthropological nature with particular attention to culture and personality studies, basic ethnographies, and studies of sociocultural change. Section I, designed for quick reference, lists the literature alphabetically by author. Section II contains both the complete bibliographic information and the reference annotation. The annotations outline the Athabascan information in each referenced work, point out the best works, and clarify shortcomings in others. Section III lists Athabascan literature geographically by tribal group or by area of Canada or Alaska. A general map is provided showing traditional tribal names and locations as a reference to usages in the annotated literature. In Section IV the literature is organized by time of observation; references are arranged alphabetically by author under four periods in Athabascan history: (1) precontact and early white contact, early 1700's through 1800; (2) 1801-1900; (3) 1901-1940; and (4) contemporary, 1941 through the present. Appendices contain partial lists of unpublished Athabascan literature and Athabascan references in foreign languages. (JH)
