Summary The Assiniboine are a Siouan-speaking people closely related linguistically to the Sioux and Stoney. Contemporary Assiniboine live on two reservations in northern Montana and on four reserves in southern Saskatchewan. The Assinboine file consists of 20 documents, all in English, with a time span ranging from approximately 1640 to the early twentieth century. The major focus of the file, however, is on the period from the mid-nineteenth century to about 1940. The most detailed works for a general understanding of the traditional ethnography of the Assiniboine will be found in Denig, Lowie, Dusenberry, and Kennedy. Other major topics of special note in this file are: the history of the Assinboine fur trade in Ray, the Bear and Horse cults in Ewers, the Cypress Hill Massacre in Allen and Goldring, social change and acculturation in Rodnick, Assiniboine and Cree relationships in Sharrock, and Sioux-Assiniboine-Stoney linguistic relationships in Parks.
