Sign Talk of the Cheyenne Indians

Sign Talk of the Cheyenne Indians Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This extensively researched work by a noted naturalist relies largely on the signs and gestures used by Cheyenne Indians. It features an extensive, alphabetically arranged vocabulary of over 1,700 terms — with French and German equivalents — accompanied by 700 illustrations of how to make a specific gesture for each word.

Book News Annotation:

Possibly predating speech, sign language shows remarkable cross- cultural consistency, but few populations showed the eloquence of the Cheyenne of the North American plains. This reprint of a 1918 text alphabetically organizes the correct sign for over 1700 words, over 700 of which are presented with illustrations. The book also includes a general introduction to the many uses of sign, a catalogue of 150 signs the author observed in mainstream American schools and some general advice on technique, including traditional Cheyenne sentence structure.
