Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
The author of this work is a professional ethnologist and a
member of the Order of St. Benedict. The book is divided into two portions, one dealing
with the Chilean Araucanians, the other with the Argentine Araucanians. While the main
purpose of the work is to describe childhood and child-rearing practices among the
Araucanians, such information is set in a full ethnographic description of both Chilean and
Argentine groups. Besides data on the life cycle, information is included on material
culture, subsistance activities, religion, kinship, political organization, entertainment
and art, and history. In addition to using a large amount of first-hand information, and
unusually thorough coverage of the literature was made in writing the work.
