Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This source is concerned with the physical anthropology,
pathology, ethnography and linguistics of the peoples in the anthropogeographic region
between the Juruena and Madeira rivers in western Brazil, cut by the 'Rondon Road' and
designated as 'Rondonia' by the author. Only those pages relevant to the Nambicuara tribes
have been processed. The author presents extensive anthropomentric notes, linguistic data
collected by himself and other authors, and considerable data on the material culture of
the Nambicuara, especially regarding houses and settlements, subsistence, clothing and
ornament, and weapons. Occasional brief notes appear concerning the social organization,
marriage and funeral practices, and religious customs. Notes on music and dance include
descriptions of instruments and transcription of recordings of three pieces of music, one
with words. The author's field data are supplemented greatly by a description and pictures
of the ethnographic collection in the National Museum in Rio de Janeiro, and by notes on
the observations of several other authors.
