Traditionally, the Cherokees dance to ensure individual health and social welfare. According to legend, the dance songs bequeathed to them by the Stone Coat monster will assuage all the ills of life that the monster brought. Winter dance (including the Booger Dance, which expresses the Cherokees' anxiety at the white invasion) are to be given only during times of frost, lest they affect the growth of vegetation by attracting cold and death. The summer dance (the Green Corn Ceremony and the Ballplayer's Dance) are associated with crops and vegetation. Other dances are purely for social intercourse and entertainment or are prompted by specific events in the community. When it was first published in 1951, this description of the dances of a conservative Eastern Cherokee band was hailed as a scholarly contribution that could not be duplicated, Frank G. Speak and Leonard Broom had achieved the close and sustained interaction that very best ethnological fieldwork requires. Their principal informant, will West Long, upheld the unbroken ceremonial tradition of the Big Cove band, near Cherokee, North Carolina
The managed casualty : the Japanese-American family in World War II by Leonard Broom( Book )

29 editions published between 1956 and 2016 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THIS STUDY is an assessment of one major aspect of the adjustment of Japanese Americans to the series of events comprising their removal from the communities of the Pacific Coast early in World War II, their sequestration in temporary centers under governmental control, and their eventual release. It is in a sense an?impact? study in that attention is directed toward the effects administrative policies had on family groups and the resources these groups commanded to adapt to and ameliorate the conditions imposed upon them. The preoccupation of the present study is easily justified. The importance of the family, in Japan as well as in the organization of the Japanese communities in the United States, makes this aspect of the social organization of the minority group a major concern for a rounded understanding of the evacuation. The relevance of the family as the unit of study is also indicated by the administrative policy which explicitly directed that family units be maintained in the processing of the population through the evacuation and relocation programs

Opportunity and attainment in Australia by Leonard Broom( Book )

13 editions published between 1975 and 1977 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Australia is often referred to as a classless society, with few of the class distinctions of the old world, but this description has never been tested systematically. More radical writers now assert that there is a rigid class structure and much special privilege. They maintain that there is little opportunity for persons to advance materially by their own efforts. This book attempts to provide an answer to these conflicting claims. It examines how far equality of opportunity exists, in the educational system and elsewhere. It describes the long-term trend in the distribution of wealth and income and estimates how far Australian society is stratified compared with other countries. These and related questions are examined systematically by means of the results of a national sample survey conducted by the authors in 1965 and by comparison with other evidence relating to education, employment and income. The authors' main conclusion is that, while Australian society is clearly stratified in each generation, high rates of mobility limit significantly the extent to which inequality is transmitted within the family from one generation to the next. Though primarily intended for use in senior undergraduate and graduate courses in the social sciences there is much to interest readers concerned with contemporary Australian society in particular and advanced industrial countries generally

Cherokee : NN08( )

in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection about the Cherokee consists of 46 documents, and covers the time span from 1540, the period of the first Cherokee-European contacts, to the early twenty-first century. Emphasis is placed on culture history, economy, society, and Cherokee-Euro-American relations. Others focus on folklore, myths, and magical formulas. Most deal with the topics of socio-cultural change and acculturation. Three authors, Strickland, Reid, and Reid, concentrate on Cherokee law and government. Fox deals with sex and gender in Cherokee society; Perdue with the invention of the Cherokee writing system; McLoughlin with the origin and development of the Cherokee Ghost Dance; and both Irwin and Fogelson cover shamanism, witchcraft, sorcery, and mysticism. The Cherokee are an Iroquoian-speaking people who originally occupied the southern Appalachians of North America. In 1838-1839 a major portion of the Cherokee were forcibly removed from their homeland by the United States government to the present state of Oklahoma along the infamous Trail of Tears. In the early twenty-first century there are two main groups: the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma and United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma
