Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
In this one of three volumes reconstructing traditional
Ingalik culture and society, Ogood supplements his mid-1930s fieldwork with a brief 1956
visit to focus on mental culture, defined as "ideas concerning human beings that have
been communicated to one’s mind and of which one is conscious." The text is organized
into sections dealing with ideas about the natural, social and spiritual worlds,
adjustments between these worlds, and mythology.
