Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This monograph is the second of the reports of the Ramah
project. The central theme in all Ramah investigations is the necessity for intensive
analysis of variation. Dr. Bailey's work on aspects of the reproductive cycle admirably
fulfills this objective. All his fieldwork was done in New Mexico, three-quarters in the
Ramah area. However, he also refers to Dr. Hill's fieldwork, which was carried out mostly
in Arizona. Bailey spent three-quarters of his fieldwork in the Ramah area, where he spent
the first thre summers (1938-1940). In addition to Ramah, he interviewed people in the
Chaco Canyon and Pinedale asreas of New Mexico. Informants from Ramah are indicated by
numbers, Pinedale in upper-case initials, and Chaco Canyon in lower-case initials. Dr.
Hill's informants are from Lukachukai, Keams Canyon, and White Cone in Arizona; and Buck's
Store in New Mexico.
