    • Historical information: These texts were mainly collected between the spring of 1998 and the summer of 2001. The primary voice on those recordings is Jimmy Jackson, and most of the work took place in his home. A lot of time was spent revisiting Goddard’s texts, but it was found to have been more productive to re-elicit them on Jimmy's own terms, with new versions, line-by-line. Jimmy had his own way of telling those stories, which plays out at every level of discourse, from phonology and diction to narrative structure and even dialect. This work also involved Calvin Carpenter, mostly at the Tribal headquarters. Every once in a while another speaker would show up at Jimmy Jackson’s home, such as his sister Minnie McWilliams or his friend Billy Carpenter, who was Calvin’s younger brother. The fieldwork was funded by the Wenner-Gren Foundation, and the analysis by the National Science Foundation.
