PortraitDouglas R. Parks is a professor of anthropology and co-director of the American Indian Studies Research Institute at Indiana University, and is editor of the journal "Anthropological Linguistics." He is the author and editor of numerous books, including "A Grammar of Pawnee," the two-volume "Ceremonies of the Pawnee" (Nebraska 1989), the four-volume "Traditional Narratives of the Arikara Indians "(Nebraska 1991), and "Myths and Traditions of the Arikara Indians "(Nebraska 1996). Lula Nora Pratt (1908-2001) was the last fluent speaker of Skiri Pawnee and was a wealth of traditional Pawnee cultural knowledge. Until she passed away in 2001, Pratt worked closely with Parks to compile a record of her language, of which this dictionary is one part.
