Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
In this study, Chagnon found that a situation of extreme
aggression characterized intra-tribal relations among the Yanoama of the Mavaca Basin of
Venezuela. Among these Yanoama Indians villages split frequently due to conflicts between
residents. Warfare is most frequent and fierce between villages that have developed from
such splits. The most frequent cause for conflict is the shortage of women. Alliances
between villages are very unstable because of the frequency of warfare. Chagnon found that
this high level of conflict was not at all characteristic of the Yanoama of the Uraricaa
River area in northern Brazil.
