The author, for many years anthropology curator of the
Milwaukee Public Museum, did much work in North American archaeology and ethnology, as well
as some work in East Africa. The material in the present work was gathered by him on an
expedition for the Heye Foundation. The work is primarily a descriptive study of the
Cayapa, and contains very detailed material on the economic life and material culture of
the people. Descriptions are given of the ceremonial life and beliefs of the Cayapa, as
well as sections devoted to kinship, government, etc. The very few bibliographical
references will be found in the footnotes.
