Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This is an account of the author's travels to the upper Tapajoz and Cadereri rivers. It is concerned as much with personal experiences as with objective observation. Although materials clearly related to cultures other than the Mundurucu have been marked for the appropriate files, much information has been assigned to the Mundurucu which may possibly pertain to other peoples. Some of the data of especial interest in this source are: a description of residences, population of individual villages, a listing of names of tribes in contact with the Mundurucu, legends of tribal origins, lists of cultivated and wild plants in the area, death and legends of tribal origins, lists of cultivated and wild plants in the area, death and afterlife beliefs, ordering of time, and a lengthy account of relations with rubber traders and the mission supported by the Brazilian government at Bacabal.
