Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document The author attributes Crow cultural persistence in the face of powerful assimilative pressures during the 20th century to the combined effects of five conditions: 1) possession of a homeland, lending a sense of identity as a people; 2) a local economy permitting both maintenance of social reciprocity among kin and attainment of traditional statuses; 3) religious ceremonies reinforcing the social system and activating a sense of identity through traditional forms and procedures; 4) a philosophy of causality bringing meaning to native religious forms and procedures; 5) a living language.
