Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
Written by a University of Michigan anthropologist, this

history, life cycle, witchcraft and shamanism, and ceremonial life of the people. Of
particular interest is the section on kinship and socio-political structure, which is where
the author placed his emphasis in field-work. There are also sections on the reservation
communities and culture change.
