This account is based on field work undertaken in
1915-1916. The author, a famed ethnologist, discusses Zuni kinship, household
and family organization and clans. He evaluates their importance for social
relationships and membership in other groups paying particular attention to
fraternities and the priesthood. The materials were gathered systematically
through censuses of several clans, fraternities and priesthood. Some comparisons
are with other Pueblo groups and a number of comments are offered on earlier
studies of these groups and of Zuni. The physical aspects of the town are
described in the text and maps, and settlement patterns and movements to new
houses within Zuni are also discussed and related to family organization .
Finally the author notes some changes that have occurred in Zuni during the
period between the field work of several earlier ethnologists and his own
