Description
Summary:This collection includes 30 English language documents, three translated from the German and three from the French, that contain specific data on the Jivaroan-speaking groups of southeastern Ecuador and adjacent Peru, including the Jivaro (Shuar, Shuara), Achuara (Atchuara, Achual), Huambisa, Aguaruna, Mayna, and the extinct Palta and Malacata. The major time span of the works in this collection ranges from about 1863 to 2003. Karsten, Stirling, Métraux, and Harner provide the most comprehensive coverage of traditional Jivaro ethnography, supplemented to a much lesser extent by the brief summaries in Simson, Farabee, Reiss, and Hermessen. War, warfare related ceremonies, including data on head-hunting and the preparation of the shrunken heads, are prominent themes in Up de Graff, Dickey, Bollert, and Bennett Ross. Other ethnographic topics of interest in this collection are: the evaluation of missionaries, their activities and other reports in Rivet, Salazar, and Harner. The influence of Western music on the traditional music of the Jivaro is discussed in Belzner. The formation and activities of the Shuar (Jivaro) Federation in lowland Ecuador are described in Salazar and Harner. Two studies of Jivaro anthropometry will be found in Meyers and Wright . The Shuar are the best known subgroup and a major focus of this collection.
