Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This document provides an excellent survey of Zuni

techniques are discussed in detail with some particularly interesting data on irrigation
and the 'waffle gardens'. Information is also to be found in this work on such specific
crops as: maize, wheat, beans, squash, pumpkins, and cotton. Two sections of this document
entitled 'Comments on Beans' and 'Comments on Cucurbita and Lagenaria' were written by
Lawrence Kaplan and Thomas W. Whitaker respectively.
