Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This is an early account of Bagisu ethnography, written by a missionary-anthropologist, covering roughly the period of the late nineteenth to the early twentieth century. In some particulars this study differs somewhat from the culture summary in this file by J. S. LaFontaine whose data on the Bagisu covers a later period up to about 1954. Major topics discussed in this document are: socio-political organization, personal characteristics of the people (dress, ornaments, etc.), religion, agriculture, domestic animals, house construction, crafts, economics, birth, initiation ceremonies, marriage, sickness, death, inheritance, kinship terminology, and a short section on the Bakyiga clan.
