Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This article provides a two-part analysis of wage labor among the Western Apache of the San Carlos Reservation. The first part, a study by Adams based on research conducted in 1954, traces historically the development of wage labor in the reservation era and attempts to determine the degree of success of integrating the San Carlos into a national or regional economy. Krutz' study, comprising the second half of the analysis and based on work conducted in 1970, posits that the unwillingness of the Western Apache to engage more extensively in off-reservation wage labor is part of a strategy of resistance to assimilation. The persisting significance of kinship ties, obligation to ceremonial participation, and job skill levels are also discussed in the context of wage labor.
