Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This document incorporates the efforts of five graduate
students who in the winter of 1921, under the direction of A. L. Kroeber, obtained from an
Eastern Pomo informant much valuable information on Pomo shamanism and the Kuksu cult,
material culture, calendar and counting system, sociology and economic life. This
information is further supplemented by Loeb through his own fieldwork in the Pomo area, and
from material obtained through the cooperation of five additional informants. In general,
this source is divided into three primary chapters: Economic Life; Social Organization and
Ceremonies; and Religion. Information contained within these chapters gives a general
picture of Pomo life-ways, and covers such things as: clothing and adornment; dwellings;
foods; occupations; transportation and trade; property; warfare; games; birth; puberty;
marriage, and death; crimes and punishment; concepts of the world; doctors and poisoners,
and a very complete description of various religious ceremonies, including the modern Ghost
