Concept of Culture. Arunta Kazak American. Grades 1 and 4. Publication No. 6-7 Revised.
Georgia Univ., Athens. Anthropology Curriculum Project.
This student guide illustrates the Arunta, the Kazak, and the American cultural systems. It is part of the Anthropology Curriculum Project and is designed to be used in conjunction with curriculum guides for grades 1 and 4 (SO 011 790-795). This booklet consists of three sections exploring universal anthropological concepts through both pictures and captions. Section I illustrates the aboriginal Arunta tribe, beginning with a map of Australia showing where they live. The line drawings continue by picturing their shelter, mode of transportation, tools, kinds of food, family life, child acculturation methods, family and community organization, and religion. Section II treats the Russian sheep herding Kazak tribe using the same cultural indicators--shelter, economics, social organization, and religion--in the same order to facilitate comparisons. Section III pictures the same indicators for the American way of living, but the text is more extensive because of the higher complexity and variety of industrial society, and because it compares the different ways the three cultures fulfill the same basic needs.
