AbstractThis article is concerned with some of the changes that have occurred in the pueblo of San Ildefonso in modern times. The author begins with a general account of the 'traditional' culture by which he means the culture that was found in the area from contact times until the twentieth century. Economic organization, attitudes and values, religious beliefs, political control, ceremonials and ceremonial societies, social organization, etc., are all briefly described. From this the author moves on to a consideration of changes that have occurred in this society during modern times. Particular attention is given to the development of new economic pursuits and intra-pueblo factionalism. However other trends in religion, family, social organization, medical practices, etc., are also described. The author, an ethnologist, did field work in the area.
