Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
Schultze, a zoologist at the University of Jena, based this
thorough and comprehensive study on fieldwork done during a three-year stay in the area.
The source includes portions on physical anthropology, linguistics and the folklore of the

is the life-cycle, acculturation, kinship and government. Also included are data on games,
music, flora and fauna, and material culture.
