Historical Documents Archive | Smithsonian Institution Reports

Bureau Of Ethnology to the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution

       The following volumes contain reports made to the Smithsonian Institution about the culture of the indigenous peoples of North, Central and South America including Alaska. The reports cover many topics including methods of making fire, tools, hunting weapons, diet, art, burial/mortuary customs, family traditions, medicine man traditions, tattooing, clothing, regalia and sacred ceremonies just to name a few. If you are interested in researching the traditions and lifestyles of the first people in the Americas, then these books are for you.

       The reports include photos and drawings of tools, weapons and various other artifacts to supplement and enhance the written text. There are many words and phrases from different tribal languages documented within the reports. There are even sacred sites mentioned that may have been forgotten and need protection and preservation.

       A great example of what can be found here is in the First Annual Report. It contains a long and very detailed study of the sign languages used by Native Americans and also contains burial/mortuary practices as well as other topics.
