AbstractThis study is the result of field work undertaken by the author, a professional anthropologist, during the time he lived among the Tewa Indians in the village of San Ildefonso, New Mexico. The purpose of the study was to examine the various facets of human behavior as it exhibited itself in a small homogeneous Indian community. The materials covered in this source deal with a general discussion and history of the people and village of San Ildefonso, the individual in his society, the Tewa family structure, native ideas about work and its application to earning a living, the basic aspects of Tewa religion and ceremonialism, and the various forms of secular and ceremonial dances and games. A brief summary of the basic data may be found beginning on p. 147, in the section entitled 'conformance.'
