Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This major ethnography is based on observations made by the
author during the summers of 1931 to 1933, and thereby does not completely cover the annual
cycle of the Tubatulabal. On the other hand, informants give personal histories extending
back to the mid-nineteenth century. Discussion focuses on the use of tobacco and
jimsonweed, distributional evidence, and non-material culture; linguistic, acculturation,
kinship, and physical anthropology are more sparingly covered.
