The American Language Reprint series reprints historical vocabularies of Native American languages; starting with “A Vocabulary of the Nanticoke Dialect” in 1996, they’ve added at least thirty more, and now they’ve put a searchable database online: you can search for words, phrases, and letter sequences; create your own linguistic atlas by plotting native terms on any of seven topographical maps, and build custom dictionaries. Thanks for the link, tellurian!
