Title: Sarsi Texts
Written By: Pliny Earle Goddard
Series Title: LINCOM Americana 25
Description:

(Re-edition; originally published 1915, Berkeley). The Sarsi are an Athapascan-speaking group of Indians who have been closely associated with the Northern Blackfoot of Alberta since the earliest historical reference to either tribe in 1754. There are no traditions of a trustworthy nature which connect the Sarsi definitely with any other Athapascan tribe. Linguistically all the northern Athapascan east of the Rocky Mountains except the Sarsi and the Beaver on Peace River have certain sound shifts not shared with the latter two languages. The Sarsi and Beaver, however, are hardly mutually intelligible, although both show relationships with other languages of British Columbia. The texts presented here were collected during the summer of 1905. The larger number of these texts were revised 1911 with the aid of Charlie Crowchief, who was the interpreter used in obtaining them originally. Many of the texts were also traced with the Rousselot apparatus from his dictation. The publication of the texts is for the purpose of furnishing material for phonetic and grammatical study .
