Plains Indian Sign Language

Tom White Horse – In 1930, sign talkers from 14 different Plains nations gathered at Browning, Montana as participants in a conference organized by General Hugh L. Scott for the purpose of demonstrating their use of sign language.

I have translated the direct literal meaning of the signs in this film to English. Though I have added a little more than the literal meaning in some cases when more was meant by the signer using space, position, combination of signs.
