Inhaltsangabe: This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1860 edition. Excerpt: ... SYMBOLIC WRITING. 137 CHAPTER XI. THE LANGUAGE OF SIGNS--SYMBOLIC WRITING--SPECIMENS OF SIGNS--THE NOMADIC AND SETTLED TRIBES--UNIVERSALITY OF SIGNS--A GRAMMAR OF SIGNS--ADMIRATION--ORIGIN OF PICTURE-WRITING THE ENGLISH ALPHABET--TENTS AND BLANKETS--HIEROGLYPHICS--BIRCH-BARK BOOKS LOON-FOOT--A FAMILY TREE--ANTIQUITY OF THE CRANES--THE MEDICINE LODGE--THE PATH OF LIFE--A SONG OF THE SEASONS--AN INDIAN TOMBSTONE--FOOD FOR THE DEAD--A COUPLE OF PILLAGERS--TOBACCO AT A DISCOUNT--VALUE OF BIRCH-BARK BOOKS--A TRIAL OF GENEROSITY. One of the most interesting subjects to which an ethnographer travelling among the Indians can direct his attention, is undoubtedly the language of signs and symbolic writing so extended through these tribes.

This matter is connected with so many other remarkable questions, that I should have to write a comprehensive work if I wished to exhaust it. I will confine myself, then, to explaining clearly and fully my own little stock of knowledge on the subject acquired among the Ojibbeways. The commencement of the symbolic writing must 138 ORIGIN OF SIGNS. probably be sought in the language of signs. The Indians first represented their meaning with fingers and hands, adopted in conversation certain repeated signs and gestures, and then tried to imitate these and give them a permanent character by marks on the birch bark (their paper). I will, therefore, begin with the sign-language, but only make a few remarks, as it is not so much practised among the inhabitants on Lake Superior as among the wandering tribes of the prairies further to the west....
