520 2 |a This collection of 14 documents, all in English, covers a variety of cultural, economic and environmental information, mostly on Guajiro communities in the La Guajira Peninsula in northern Colombia, based on fieldwork conducted at different times in 1920-1987. The basic and most comprehensive sources are the works of Virginia Gutierrez de Pineda and Roberto Pineda Giraldo, both of them Colombian ethnologists, who conducted fieldwork among the Guajiro in 1947. The first provides detailed descriptions of social organization including family system, life cycles, clan structure, social control and property system (Gutierrez de Pineda 1948). The second deals with religious believers and practices including major ceremonies and rituals, beliefs about rains, diseases and spirits, and divination, magic and related shamanistic practices (Pineda Giraldo 1947). The collection also includes an account by a Swedish traveler who visited Guajiro in three separate trips made in 1920, the 1930s, and 1955 (Bolider 1957). Although written for popular consumption, this book contains much valuable ethnographic data on aspects of Guajiro culture including names and naming practices, clothing, herding practices, property rights, social control and inter-clan feuds, life cycles and major ceremonials. The information in these anthropological and historical accounts is supplemented and updated by other works in the collection. Santa Cruz discusses the workings of the avunculate (Santa Cruz 1941) and culturally accepted strategies of improving social status (Santa Cruz 1960). Other themes include social groups and hierarchies (Watson 1967), Shamanistic practices and symbols (Perrin 1987), gender, marriage and sexuality (Watson-Franke 1987, Watson 1973), effects of urbanization on personality (Watson 1968) and family dynamics (Watson 1986), and culture-specific meanings of dreams (Watson 1981). Finally, the collection also includes a summary article, based on secondary data, on Guajiro culture and society (Armstrong and Métraux 1948). Themes covered include Guajiro history, subsistence, houses and villages, dress and adornment, manufactures, trade, socio-political organization, and life cycles.
