INDIAN TALK: hand signals of the North American Indians. by Iron Eyes Cody.
Guide to silent language used by Plains tribes for centuries. The North American continent was once populated by hundreds of Indian tribes who all spoke different languages. An incredible sign language developed whereby Indians who spoke different tongues were able to effectively communicate without saying a word. Alphabetically, 246 words, phrases, and counting methods of 'Indian Sign Language' are photographically depicted. Sign language was primarily a mechanism by which Plains groups could conduct trade activities. Sign language deals with ideas rather than individual words. Each sign or idea unit must be used in proper sequence and context, and with proper accent and delivery: the sign for 'question' may mean why, where, what, who, how many, or can you, will you, depending on the context in which it is used. The sign for 'eat' may mean 'to eat' or 'food.' 150 illustrations, 112 pages.
