Hidatsa field recordings (J. Boyle, 2000-2004)

Collection Descriptive Notes
Boyle elicits words and sentences from native speakers, four male and one female. This collection also includes two DATs of chants excerpted from analog souces and a DAT of commentary on recordings of traditional drumming.
Collection Technical Notes
This collection originally consisted of 36 DATs: 1) Two of them are recordings of Mandan, which are now placed in their own collection (q.v.); 2) Three of them proved to be completely blank; and 3) Thirty-one of them are the original field recordings done in stereo and at the 16-bit depth. They were entrusted to the LLA by John Boyle c. 2005. (The numbers on the DATs--inside brackets-- were arbitrarily assigned to them by JJT. The field recordings are numbered 1-19; 22-24; 26 and 29-36. The blank tapes are numbered 20, 21 and 25 and the Mandan tapes were skipped over between Nos. 26 and 29. WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
This collection has no playable audio.
