Web resource on the Timucua language

Digital Culture of Metropolitan New York (DCMNY), the group which works to make digital resources of New York area libraries available via the internet, has just completed a new digitization project of five rare documents in the Timucua language.

Five Timucua Language Imprints

The 1612 documents are the earliest known texts in a North American indigenous language north of Mexico, and the new digital versions are a vast improvement on the old microfilms and photostats.

The New York Historical Society organized the new digitization project, and particular recognition should go to Henry Raine, of NYHS for overseeing the project.
