Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document According to Schlegel "most ethnological and archeological analyses of Pueblo social organization derive its particular character from the need to adopt to an arid environment. This article challenges an ecological interprettion (without dismissing ecological constraints), finding similarities between the organization of one Pueblo society, the Hopi, and features of what Kopyoff calls 'internal frontier societies' in Africa. Hopi political and ceremonial organization is viewed as responding to 'internal frontier' migration" (p. 376).
