AbstractThis work, the product of a number of years of research among the Pawnee of Oklahoma, is a sensitive and illuminating portrayal of the Pawnee as they existed in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The information presented is based on memory ethnography provided by Weltfish's informant, Mark Evarts. Evarts was a Pawnee of the Skidi band who experienced reservation life during the period of 1861-1875. Weltfish authenticated this information with ethnographic documents and data that he collected during his fieldwork. The first part of the monograph provides background on Pawnee history and culture, followed by a series of brief chapters reconstructing the daily and seasonal round of life of a group of Pawnee in Nebraska during the year 1867. The book concludes with a section of end notes, a lengthy bibliography, and an index.
