Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document The author, for many years anthropology curator of the Milwaukee Public Museum, did much work in North American archaeology and ethnology, as well as some work in East Africa. The material in the present work was gathered by him on an expedition for the Heye Foundation. The work is primarily a descriptive study of the Cayapa, and contains very detailed material on the economic life and material culture of the people.
