Arizona Indian Tribes: Historical Notes. Sharing Ideas, Volume 7, Number 8.
Sizemore, Mamie, Comp.
In 1971, 24 teachers attending summer school at Northern Arizona University reviewed hundreds of books on the history and culture of Southwestern American Indians. Since no one publication that dealt specifically with the historical and cultural background of Arizona Indian tribes could be found, they consolidated their notes into this resource bulletin. The writers of the papers found that all authors do not agree on the early history of the different tribes, so there are some duplication of facts and several different versions of the same topic. The 23 papers cover 4 categories: desert tribes, high mesa tribes, mountain tribes, and river tribes. Major topics include agriculture, clothing, education, history, housing, legends, language, religion, and social life. (PS)
