Squamish Language - Documentation

Documentation

Anthropologists and linguists who have worked on the Squamish language go back to the 1880's. The first collection of words was by the German anthropologist Franz Boas. The following decade, another anthropologist, Charles Hill-Tout, collected some Squamish words, sentences, and stories. In the 1930's, anthropologist Homer Barnett worked with Jimmy Frank. Barrett collected information about traditional Squamish culture, including some Squamish words. In the 1950's, the Dutch linguist Aert J. Kuipers worked on the first comprehensive grammar of the Squamish language. In 1968, the BC Language Project undertook more documentation of the Squamish language and culture. Randy Bouchard and Dorothy Kennedy were the main collaborators on this project. They devised the writing system presently used for Squamish.
