Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This study is the result of field work undertaken by the
author, a professional anthropologist, during the time he lived among the Tewa Indians in
the village of San Ildefonso, New Mexico. The purpose of the study was to examine the
various facets of human behavior as it exhibited itself in a small homogeneous Indian
community. The materials covered in this source deal with a general discussion and history
of the people and village of San Ildefonso, the individual in his society, the Tewa family
structure, native ideas about work and its application to earning a living, the basic
aspects of Tewa religion and ceremonialism, and the various forms of secular and ceremonial
dances and games. A brief summary of the basic data may be found beginning on p. 147, in
the section entitled 'conformance.'
