Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document In this report on the highly acculturated Klamath Reservation Indians of south-eastern Oregon the results of Rorschach tests on ten different persons are discussed. Test results as well as general observation indicate a marked reservedness and restraint in interpersonal relations - with fellow Indians as well as with Whites - as characteristic for these Indians. In the course of acculturation the extended family household with shared property and division of labor has given way to the nuclear family household with a strictly individualized property system and minimal cooperativness. Personal relations between the members of the generally rather unstable nuclear family are also marked by considerable constraint. The authors make it clear that present-day Reservation culture bears little resemblence to the original Klamath culture, and that the present-day Klamath personality type can not be equated with the personality types of pre-contact Klamath society.
