Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
The part processed first presents one myth as a
representative type of Yokuts literature. The style is then discussed by the authors, first
in its aspects which are the result of or at least reflect the limitations of the language.
Then, the narrative style is analyzed to illustrate conventional presentation by the
Yokuts. Finally, the cultural position of the Yokuts among other California tribes, as
indicated in their mythology, is presented. Although the principal subjects discussed are
linguistics, literature and mythology, some cultural material is included.
