Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This is a short summary history of the increase in tensions among the Navajo for the period between 1870 and 1945. In suggesting tentative methods for acculturating the tribe, Dr. Kluckhohn pays tribute to the aims of the top level of the Indian Bureau from 1932 to the time of his writing. This discussion was prepared as part of a symposium on 'Approaches to National Unity' conducted at the Conference on Science, Philosophy and Religion in Their Relation to the Democratic Way of Life. The author was a leading anthropologist who studied the Navajo for many years.
