Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This document, by a pioneer traveler-ethnologist, deals
primarily with the diet of the Zuni. The degree of rapport achieved by the author was
unusual, in that he truly became a member of the tribe, holding both the offices of second
chief and Head Priest of the Bow. The material presented includes detailed information of
corn and wheat agriculture, on food preservation and preparation, on eating customs and
etiquette, and on ceremonies relating to food. Historical material is included along with
the texts of a number of folk-tales and myths. Also covered are a number of aspects of
material culture and food collecting.
