9780030787454: Pueblo Indians (Case Study in Cultural Anthropology)

An authoritative treatment of the social, cultural, and ethnohistorical data on both the Eastern and Western Pueblos! The information contained in this case study is the result of the author's lifetime spent among the Pueblos. "I have lived in or visited every village small and large from the Hopi towns of lower and upper Moencopi in Arizona to the double apartment buildings of Taos Pueblo in northern New Mexico," writes the author in his preface. He writes not of a single people and their culture but of a group of related peoples and their adaptation through time to their changing physical, socioeconomic, and political environments. A rare, inside view of native life and culture by an anthropologist who is himself a Pueblo Indian. Perhaps the best single volume on the subject.

Review:

"The author grew up in the Santa Clara Pueblo and helped membership in it until his death. He was also an anthropologist who wrote beautifully about one of the most fascinating groups of people in the world. For thousands of years the Pueblo people have followed an elaborate artistic and ceremonial life in the oases of the dry Southwest. They did this in the face of bothersome neighbors like the Apache, the Navajo, the Spanish conquistadors, Catholic priests, American settlers, and state bureaucrats." --Martha C. Ward, University of New Orleans
