AbstractThis account of the Havasupai is based on field work undertaken in 1918, 1919 and 1921 by the author, a trained ethnologist. It is a comprehensive monograph covering all aspects of culture with a particularly strong treatment of material culture. In addition to Havasupai materials there is considerable distributional data covering the Southwest, the Basin and Plains and California. Havasupai are compared with groups in these areas and the presence or absence of traits, their similarities, etc. are noted. The author attempts some reconstruction based on distributional evidence. A number of maps are provided which are useful in this context.
