Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This source is a chapter from a book on acculturation. It compares the aboriginal, contact and post-contact conditions of the Fox in a number of areas, including material culture and subsistence, social and political organization, religion, and relations with other Indian and Euro-American groups. It also discusses warfare, history, the acculturation process, the community, schools, leisure time activities, and arts and crafts. Joffe concludes that the Fox tribe's strong in-group feeling and solidarity are largely responsible for their current life-style and ability to mutually coexist with Euro-American neighbors while maintaining their own traditions. Besides Euro-American technology, the Fox have had little interest in Euro-American institutions, and their traditional religion and social organization have persisted.
