Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
Koppert's dissertation on the Clayoquot, a sub-tribe of the
central Nootka, is concerned mainly with material culture. It describes in detail the
construction of houses and canoes; the making of tools, weapons, clothes, ornaments, toys,
and musical instruments; and the getting and preparation of food. There is also information
on the treatment of the sick, forms of recreation, warfare, potlatch, and burials. The
author had been a missionary among the Clayoquot.
