Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document The data in this study were derived from two separate studies of the Shonto area, one by Adams in 1955 and one by Ruffing in 1972. The purpose of this article is to document social and economic change and persistence between 1955 and 1971. The authors present data on the study population, social and economic development between 1955 and 1971, and the implications of these developments. The conclusion is that '…social development at Shonto exhibits growth without change, while economic development exhibits change without 'progress,'…' (p. 80).
