Dr A. S. Gatschet, of the Bureau of Ethnology, visited the Catawba tribe
prior to March, 1882, when he obtained an extensive vocabulary of the
Catawba language, but he did not record any information respecting the
social organization of the people.
For further information regarding the Siouan tribes formerly inhabiting
the Atlantic coast region, see Siouan Tribes of the East, by James
Mooney, published as a bulletin of the Bureau of Ethnology.
