Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This book was written by a professional anthropologist
schooled in the theoretical concepts and methods associated with the British
'structuralist' school of social anthropology. The book presents an analysis of kinship
structure and social change in the Northern Ojibwa community of Pekangekum. Data are also
presented on changing patterns in Ojibwa marriage selection with the increase in available
spouses due to population expansion. In preparation for the presentation of the material
the author describes briefly the history of the Northern Ojibwa up to the late 1950s, the
history and external relations of the community of Pekangekum with the outside world,
demography and residence patterns, and the ecology and economy of the people.
