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.
