The Tewa world : space, time, being, and becoming in a Pueblo society by Alfonso Ortiz( Book )

31 editions published between 1969 and 2012 in English and held by 1,230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is not a descriptive monograph, but an essay in cultural analysis, one which views culture as a system of symbols and which takes form under the impact of modern structural theory. A theme which runs throughout is the concept of dual organization, a structure which once characterized ten to fifteen percent of all known human societies, and which is found in a highly developed form among the Tewa today. Defined as "a system of antithetical institutions with the associated symbols, ideas, and meanings in terms of which social interaction takes place," a dual organization is for the Tewa a natural result of adapting to an environment comprised of opposites--two extremes of weather during the year; two means of subsistence, hunting in winter and farming in summer; and two periods and directions of migration in the origin myth

North American Indian anthropology : essays on society and culture( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,078 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These essays explore the blending of structural and historical approaches to American Indian anthropology that characterizes the perspective developed by the late Fred Eggan and his students at the University of Chicago. They include studies of kinship and social organization, politics, religion, law, ethnicity, and art. Many reflect Eggan's method of controlled comparison, a tool for reconstructing social and cultural change over time. Together these essays make substantial descriptive contributions to American Indian anthropology, presenting contemporary interpretations of diverse groups from the Hudson Bay Inuit in the north to the Highland Maya of Chiapas in the south. The collection will serve as an introduction to Native American social and cultural anthropology for readers interested in the dynamics of Indian social life

Zia Pueblo : NT38( )

in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Zia are a Keres-speaking pueblo tribe who live on the Jemez River, 35 miles northwest of Albuquerque, New Mexico. This collection of eight documents is about the Zia. The classic work is by Leslie White and was based on his fieldwork from 1928-1929 and return visits during the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. He focused mostly on secret societies, including membership, recruitment, and ceremonies. Two of the documents are by Hoebel. The first is a brief account of Zia history and culture that was also published in the Handbook of North American Indians. The second is about Zia law. There is no private law. Clans and lineages have no role in the legal process. All cases are brought before the governor and a council comprised of the heads of secret societies. Lange has written a detailed account of the famous Green Corn Dance; Hawley et al. a nutritional study; Polese on the Zia sun symbol; and Stevenson on child birth. The bibliography of citations to works on Zia Pueblo is also taken from vol. 9 of the Handbook on North American Indians, Southwest
