Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This source presents a detailed study of the Hopi clan system based on the data collected by the author in the summer of 1915 at First Mesa on the Hopi Reservation (villages of Walpi and Sichumovi), and further supplemented in 1916 with additional comparative information from Second Mesa (villages of Mishongnovi and Shipaulovi). In each of the villages studied the author instituted his own census to determine the numerical size of the clans, the relationship of clan members to one another, and the degree to which clan intermarriages have taken place. The data from this census occupy a large portion of this work. Following this, additional information will be found on linked clans, totemism, political clan functions, and the role of clans and ceremonial associations in the society. An appendix contains a number of kinship charts showing actual blood relationships within the various clans mentioned in the text.
