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

8 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 555 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 86 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
