DescriptionThis collection contains materials collected by Howard Reid in the course of his fieldwork among the Hupd'äh people in the Upper Rio Negro region of Brazil's northwestern Amazonas state between 1973-1976, as well as his travels through other regions of Colombia and Venezuela in the 1990s. Also included are materials about the Hupd'äh and neighboring peoples that Reid wrote while in the United Kingdom after his fieldwork, a series of maps based on information from Reid's research. The materials include scanned images of ethnographic and transcription notebooks, field diaries and journals, documents from FUNAI, maps, and color slides. There are also a small number of digitized audio cassettes which contain Hup tales whose transcriptions appear in the scanned notebooks and/or Reid's Ph.D. thesis.

Most of the materials in this collection are public, however a small amount of materials (in folders identified as "Restricted") are not public.

The curation of this collection was made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
