    • Historical information: Jane Hill was born in Berkeley in 1939. She received a BA from Berkeley in 1960, and a PhD in anthropology from UCLA in 1966, with a dissertation titled "A Grammar of the Cupeño Language." She went on to become Professor of Anthropology and Linguistics at the University of Arizona beginning in 1983, retiring in 2009. Her primary area of research was on the Uto-Aztecan languages; she conducted fieldwork on three of them (Cupeño, Nahuatl and Tohono O'odham), publishing a reference grammar of Cupeño in 2003. Professor Hill passed away in 2018.
      Roscinda Nolasquez, Hill's primary language consultant, was born at Cupa in 1892, and lived through the 1903 US government removal of her people to what is now the Pala Indian Reservation in northern San Diego County. She passed away in 1987 (for a remembrance, see here: https://escholarship.org/uc/item/47q1n9w4). As Hill writes on page three of her dissertation, she also benefited from the the teaching of Cupeño speakers James Brittian (1887-1971) and Frances Bosley (1898-1991).
    • Scope and content: This collection contains materials from Hill's documentation of Cupeño in the 1960s, divided into five series: 001, 11 field notebooks including grammar, vocabulary, and transcriptions, with additional associated documents; 002, 11 original reel-to-reel tapes recording stories, songs, and other texts; 003, Hill's notes on Paul-Louis Faye's Paul-Louis Faye's field notes on Cupeño linguistics and ethnography, held by the Bancroft library at UC Berkeley; 004, lexical materials; 005, miscellaneous indexes, notes, correspondence, etc.
      Most of the field notebooks contain summary indexes at the beginning, which have been copied into the description field of each corresponding item. Where it has been relatively easy to discern, some relations have been provided between the notebooks of Series 001 and the sound recordings of Series 002, with page numbers of transcribed stories indicated in the latter. In most cases, correspondences between original sound recordings and transcriptions have yet to be established. The bound volume contained in HillJ.001.013 is a full set of handwritten transcriptions of many of the stories that are heard in Series 002, with an incomplete index relating the transcriptions to the original reels. These transcriptions formed the basis of the published book Hill & Nolasquez (1973), "Mulu'wetam: The First People: Cupeño Culture, Mythology, and Cupeño Language Dictionary," which came with an accompanying series of cassette tapes that are derived from the original reel-to-reel tapes and have not been cataloged (as of July 2020).
