Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This paper deals with the relationship of cultural and environmental integration in Yokuts and Western Mono society. In describing this relationship, Gayton indicates how the environment functions as a cultural stabilizer in the society, and may even act as an active cultural integrator. In the process of working out her hypothesis, the author presents much additional ethnographic information on the Yokuts and Western Mono, especially in regard to their annual cycles of work and leisure, trade relationships, beliefs about the earth and universe, chronology, mythology and customs and beliefs associated with animals. The author was a professional anthropologist from the University of California.
