Perspectives in American Indian Culture Change.
Spicer, Edward H., Ed.
The accounts of the 6 American Indian cultures in this book are designed to contribute to the comparative study of acculturation. An analysis of change under conditions of contact between Indian and Anglo-American cultures is presented. The Indian cultures described are the Yaqui, the Rio Grande Pueblos, the Mandan, the Navajo, the Wasco-Wishram, and the Kwakiutl. The responses of the different Indian groups to similar conditions of contact are examined. (TL)
