Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Preuss presents data on the mythology and religion of the Cagaba. Much of this was gathered in the form of native texts during some five months of field work. However, these data plus the author's observations are not sufficient to give a full picture of the religious system. Scattered information on social life and some aspects of material culture are also presented, but mainly in connection with the discussions of ritual and belief.
