Edition of The Social Organization and the Secret Societies of the Kwakiutl Indians (1897), by Franz Boas with George Hunt

Preparation for publication of an annotated critical edition of "The Social Organization and the Secret Societies of the Kwakiutl Indians" (1897) by anthropologist Franz Boas, one of the first anthropological works based on ethnographic fieldwork. (36 months)

Under the rubric of a new Franz Boas Critical Edition book series, we propose to reprint and annotate Boas's important 1897 monograph "The Social Organization and the Secret Societies of the Kwakiutl Indians" in both print and as a multimedia website, through a collaborative partnership that is international, interdisciplinary and intercultural in scope. Framed with critical scholarly essays and contemporary indigenous Kwakwaka'wakw perspectives, these new editions will re-unite the original text with the rich and diverse but widely distributed archival resources and museum collections associated with and resulting from the original monograph.
