Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document In this paper Levy attempts two major goals "…first, to reevaluate the data relevant to the nature and extent of the differences in shamanistic beliefs and practices that existed between the Hopis and the various other Pueblo groups, and second, to explain them by presenting a historical reconstruction that proposes that Hopi shamanism developed independently of the Eastern Pueblos and that the Hopis rejected Keresan influencs that were accepted by Zunis and Tanoans" (p. 308).
