BeschreibungLong considered the undisputed authority on the Indians of the southern United States, anthropologist John Swanton published this history as the Smithsonian Institution's "Bureau of American Ethnology (BAE) Bulletin 103" in 1931. Swanton's descriptions are drawn from earlier records--including those of DuPratz and Romans--and from Choctaw informants. His long association with the Choctaws is evident in the thorough detailing of their customs and way of life and in his sensitivity to the presentation of their native culture.
PortraitJohn R. Swanton received one of the first Ph.D.s awarded in this country, from Harvard University in 1900, and was head of the first DeSoto Commission in 1936. He published more than 40 books including The Indian Tribes of North America. Kenneth H. Carleton is Tribal Archaeologist for the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians in Philadelphia, Mississippi.
