Hočąk Syllabic Text — Mąznį’ąbᵋra (The Live Iron)


  Notebook 21: 1


The Manuscript

The MS is written in a reasonably clear hand throughout, probably by Oliver LaMère, Radin's translator. The informant is unknown. The numerals "40" are written near the upper left corner of the first page and probably denote a story number in a system of enumeration not presently known. At the very top center is written the title in syllabic script: (Mąznį’ąpra). This means "the Live Iron", an obsolescent term for naturally occurring magnetic iron, which in mineral form is called "magnetite" and which was commonly referred to as "lodestone" (see the Commentary to the translation). We find in the denouement on p. 130, the description of the grandfather as which transliterates as mąznį’ąp wirukanara, the first word of which can be analyzed as, mąz, "iron"; nį’ąp, "living, live"; meaning "live iron". The second word terminates in the definite article -ra ("the one such that"), the whole word meaning, "the one who is in charge". So the phrase, mąznį’ąp wirukanara, means, "the one who is in charge of live iron". It appears that Radin has written just above the first line of text, Mązniabera (a softened form of Mąznį’ąpra), which means "The Live Iron." Just above this to the right of the numeral "40" and below the title, is an expression either crossed out or underlined. It is which is for wąknu Mąznį’ąpka, "old man Live Iron", where the terminal -ka denotes a personal name.
