Description
Summary:The Yanoama are indigenous people straddling the border between extreme southeastern Venezuela and upper northwestern Brazil. This file consists of eleven documents that concentrate on specific Yanoama villages or subgroups and covers the time period from approximately 1950 to 1987. The monograph by Shuster is on the Waica and contains a sociological analysis of inter- and intra-community relations. The two documents by Barker, an American Protestant missionary, are also on the Waica. The main subject of the article by Layrisse is blood groups among the Waica. Some comparative information is included. Ethnographic information on material culture, religion, and political structure of the Surara and Pakidai is contained in the document by Becher. The Yanoama language of the Surara and Pakidai is the subject of the document by Rodrigues. The chapter from Wilbert's book is on the Sanema primarily, with information on other Venezuelan Indians included as well. The two monographs by Chagnon are general ethnographies of communities especially in Venezuela with comparative data from communities in Brazil. Early and Peters discuss population dynamics of the Mucajai Yanoama in Brazil from the late 1950s to 1987.
