Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This is a strong argument for the theory that the Navajo have been sedentary agriculturists since historic times. Pursuing this thesis, the author, an anthropologist, discusses the degree of community cooperation and the emergence of leaders as a result of farming and the control of flood waters for irrigation. Where agriculture was established, she finds, cooperation under respected leaders occurred. Consequently, she joins with other applied anthropologists in urging government agencies to 'recognize again 'those weighty substantial men' in whom authority and control are vested - the local headmen, the community leaders.
