Abstract. Some time after he met Alfred Kroeber in 1909, Juan Dolores wrote out a set of autobiographical reminiscences in his first language, O'odham (Papago), a member of the Uto-Aztecan language family. The reminiscences illustrate the contrast between a happy life with his parents and his horrendous experiences while attending the Presbyterian-run government school in Tucson, Arizona. The O'odham text is presented here in interlinear form. The first line is Juan Dolores's written version; the second line is a phonemic retranscription; and the third line is Dolores's interlinear translation. This is followed by my own free translation of the text.
