Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This document, which was first submitted as an M. A. thesis
to the Department of Anthropology, University of Utah, was the outcome of four field trips
made over a total period of five months during which the author lived among the Havasupai
people. This work gives the reader a general picture of Havasupai life both as it exists
today, after considerable acculturation, and as it existed in the past prior to European
contacts. Much emphasis in the paper is placed on the position of the Havasupai woman in
the society. The data presented herein was obtained primarily from nine informants, three
men and six women, ranging in age from 31 to 86 years of age. Frequent references to the
works of other ethnographers who have studied the Havasupai in the past are made throughout
the document, and many direct quotations are presented primarily from the studies of Leslie
