    • Historical information: Crow is a language in the Siouan language family that is spoken on the Crow Reservation in southern Montana. These materials were collected by Edwin Ko on the Crow Reservation in Montana beginning in July 2018 during his graduate studies at University of California, Berkeley. One of the goals of this project was to collect spoken texts, oral narratives, and conversations from a number of different genres. Funding for this research came from an Oswalt Endangered Language Grant administered by the Survey of California and Other Indian Languages in the Department of Linguistics at the University of California, Berkeley.
    • Scope and content: Recordings of elicitation sessions, texts (including personal reminiscences and commentary about language, culture, and identity), and photographic documentation related to places on the Crow Reservation. Each file bundle contains recordings from a single speaker involving a single data type (recordings of elicitation sessions, primary texts based on interviews). Most of the texts, spoken in Crow with a translation in English, fall into one of two domains: (a) discussions about the past, present, and future of life on the Crow Reservation, and (b) personal reminiscences and stories about specific places on the Crow Reservation. All audio was recorded on an Zoom H4N Pro digital recorder and all photos were taken using the camera on an iPhone 8.
