Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This detailed ethnography of the old pueblo of Oraibi
presents rich information on Hopi culture before the major acculturation occurred. The
source has two primary objectives, which are the description and functional analysis of the
social organization and the ceremonialism. The work demonstrated the functional dominance
of the religion over the other aspects of ther Hopi life, especially on the kin and social
groupings, including community structure, and the establishment of new communities. Massive
information is given on rituals within the ceremonial cycle.
