Summary:This collection about the Zuni, a pueblo Indian group located in the southwestern United States, consists of 33 documents. The collection is oriented toward traditional Zuni ethnography represented by the classic works of Stevenson, Cushing, Kroeber, Parsons, Bunzel, and Woodbury. The social and political organization of the Zuni are covered in Ladd, Eggan, Eggan and Pandey, and Pandey. Kinship is discussed in Kroeber, Schneider, and Ladd; and agriculture is covered by Cushing, Bohrer, and Damp. Acculturation and culture change are topics of focus in McFeat, Leighton, Mills, and Eggan and Pandey. Other ethnographic subjects covered in this collection are kachinas, family and household, and ceramics. Wyaco wrote an autobiographical account of growing up in the Zuni society, and Pandey critiques various anthropologists' work with the Zuni over the years. The Zuni, who call themselves "A shiwi," are primarily concentrated in the single village or pueblo of Zuni situated on a reservation in west-central New Mexico.
