Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This is a brief article giving the content of fourteen dreams experienced by an acculturated family of five persons. The dreams are interpreted psychoanalytically and are, according to Kluckhohn, typical of other Navajo dreams in many ways and especially in their emphasis upon anxiety and in the absence of overt references to sexual experiences. The material presented here by Dr. Kluckhohn is drawn from unpublished field notes of the late Dr. William Morgan, and is corroborated by the former's personal knowledge of the informants concerned. Although the number of dreams is small, they are of interest in that they are among the very few available in published studies.
