An Apache Life-Way: The Economic, Social, and Religious Institutions of the Chiricahua Indians

by

An Apache Life-Way: The Economic, Social, and Religious Institutions of the Chiricahua Indians Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally published in 1941, An Apache Life-Way remains one of the most important and innovative studies of southwestern Native Americans, drawing upon a rich and invaluable body of data gathered by the ethnographer Morris Edward Opler during the 1930s. Blending the analysis of individual Apache lives with the analysis of their culture, this landmark study tells of the ceremonies, religious beliefs, social life, and economy of the Chiricahua Apache. Opler traces, in fascinating detail, how a person “becomes an Apache,” beginning with conception, moving through puberty rites, marriage, and the various religious, domestic, and military duties and experiences of adulthood, and concluding with the rites and beliefs surrounding death.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 481-482) and index.
