Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document In this study Schlegel explores the symbolic significance of the gift of a kachina doll from "father" to daughter in Hopi society. The term "father" as used here, refers not only to biological parenthood, but also as a reference to clan brothers of the biological father, to the sponsor of an initiate into a ceremonial society, to the husband of a female ceremonial mother, to a village chief, and, collectively to the men who sit together as advisers to the chief (p. 8). According to the author "…the total meaning of the kachina doll is embedded in all of Hopi principles of kinship and the proper relations between kin, and in the Hopi view of the nature of the world and the parts that people and supernaturals beings play in it" (p. 9).
