Lucky, the Navajo singer by Alexander H Leighton( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lucky the Navajo Singer was, he thought, forty years old when he dictated his life story in 1940 to doctors Alexander and Dorothea Leighton. Lucky was orphaned twice before he was six or eight years old, first when his mother died, and again on the deaths of his mother's parents. Lucky then spent several formative years with a Navajo elder who was raised in the traditional Navajo way, a man whose wisdom was a resource for the small group of Navajos living in relative isolation southeast of the main Navajo Reservation. As he relates his life story through his great friend and interpreter, Bill Sage, the mature Lucky emerges as a complex human being whose story presents invaluable insight into daily events - both mundane and sacred - at a Navajo community in the 1940s. Griffen has rescued this autobiography in a tribute not only to Lucky, but to the Leightons, who in 1940 were fledgling psychiatrists at the beginning of their cross cultural research. At long last the story of Lucky the Navajo Singer joins the all-too-few Native American life histories
Zuni NT23( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection about the Zuni, a pueblo Indian group located in the southwestern United States, consists of 33 documents. The collection is oriented toward traditional Zuni ethnography represented by the classic works of Stevenson, Cushing, Kroeber, Parsons, Bunzel, and Woodbury. The social and political organization of the Zuni are covered in Ladd, Eggan, Eggan and Pandey, and Pandey. Kinship is discussed in Kroeber, Schneider, and Ladd; and agriculture is covered by Cushing, Bohrer, and Damp. Acculturation and culture change are topics of focus in McFeat, Leighton, Mills, and Eggan and Pandey. Other ethnographic subjects covered in this collection are kachinas, family and household, and ceramics. Wyaco wrote an autobiographical account of growing up in the Zuni society, and Pandey critiques various anthropologists' work with the Zuni over the years. The Zuni, who call themselves "A shiwi," are primarily concentrated in the single village or pueblo of Zuni situated on a reservation in west-central New Mexico
