Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This work, the product of a number of years of research
among the Pawnee of Oklahoma, is a sensitive and illuminating portrayal of the Pawnee as
they existed in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The information
presented is based on memory ethnography provided by Weltfish's informant, Mark Evarts.

book concludes with a section of end notes, a lengthy bibliography, and an
