Blessingway by Leland Clifton Wyman( Book )

7 editions published between 1970 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1961, the University of Arizona received the manuscripts and field notes of Father Herard Haile, a Franciscan missionary, who served actively among the Indians for 54 years. Among the materials were the notes and typed pages of the Blessingway Ceremonial of Navajo Indians. After the death of Father Haile, the University of Arizona selected Dr. Leland C. Wyman--distinguished physiologist, biologist, anthropologist, folklorist, and writer--to edit the Blessingway manuscript for publication. The book contains 3 versions of the Blessingway Ceremonial as told to Father Haile by Slim Curly, Frank Mitchell, River Junction Curly, and Little Big Water (informant x). Included in the book are tables explaining major mythic motifs of Blessingway, monsters, reproductions of Blessingway dry paintings, and symbols of Blessingway dry paintings. (Ej)

Head and face masks in Navaho ceremonialism by Berard Haile( Book )

17 editions published between 1947 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Father Berard Haile (d. 1955) spent a lifetime studying and recording Navajo ceremonial practices. His ethnographic work was held in wide regard by contemporary anthropologists, and he is still commonly cited by present-day students of Navajo ceremonialism. Originally issued in a limited edition in 1947, Head and Face Masks in Navaho Ceremonialism presents information on masks and their uses, most of it obtained in 1908 from one family of singers and supplemented over the following forty years. It offers a detailed account of the necessary attributes of Navajo masks and their construction. At the heart of the book is a day-by-day account of the nine-day Nightway healing practice, now the primary ceremony in which masks are used. There is also a discussion of two masks Haile attributes to the Upward Reaching Way, no longer practiced. An addendum by Robert Young updates Haile's Navajo orthography. In this work, Haile reports what he was told with a minimum of interpretation, assumption, or opinion. The result is a Navajo account of the origin of the ye'ii or Holy People whom the masks and associated sand paintings personify
