in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection about the Trumai consists of 2 documents. The monograph by Murphy and Quain is the only available primary ethnographic account on the Trumai, and provides a first hand account of Trumai culture and society as observed by anthropologist Buell Quain in 1938. The document is especially comprehensive in its coverage and analyses of the Trumai personality, ethos, life cycle, and interpersonal attitudes and behavior, but less extensive on material culture and religion. The document also incorporates important ethnographic data from the work of Karl Von den Steinen who visited the Trumai in 1884. The culture summary was written by Teferi Abate Adem in 2008 based on ethnographic information primarily from Murphy and Quain (1955) and Levi-Strauss (1950)
