Biographical history

David C. Duvall, 1878-1911, was born in Montana, USA, the son of a Peigan woman and a French Canadian fur trader employed at Fort Benton. He was a blacksmith on the Peigan reservation at Browning. In 1903 he was engaged as an interpreter by anthropologist Clark Wissler who was collecting material for the American Museum of Natural History. He later collected narratives on facets of Blackfoot life and culture from older members of the Montana Peigan, and the Blood and Blackfoot (Siksika) in Alberta. He sent these accounts to Wissler in New York, who edited and published them in a series of AMNH anthropological papers.

Custodial history

The photocopies were acquired by the Glenbow Archives from the American Museum of Natural History in 1967.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of ethnological notes about Peigan, Blood and Blackfoot. Topics consist of a wide variety of societies, dances (including sun dance), games, bundles (including beaver), pipes, lodges and songs.
