Crow Indians

 
9780030090400: Crow Indians

For nearly ten years between 1907 and 1931, anthropologist Robert H. Lowie lived among the Crow Indians, listening to the old men and women tell of times gone forever. Lowie learned much about what had been, and still was, a society remarkable for its variability and cohesion, and for its resistance to the encroachments of white civilization. Written with clarity and vigor, Lowie's study makes instantly accessible what had taken him years to discover. He sacrificed neither personal sensitivity nor narrative skill to scientific scruples, but brought his scientific work to life. Crow religion, ceremonies, taboos, kinship bonds, tribal organization, division of labor, codes of honor, and rites of courtship and wedlock receive their due. "The Crow Indians" is a masterpiece of ethnography, foremost for Lowie's portrayal of the different personalities he encountered: Gray-bull and his marital troubles; the great visionary Medicine-crow; Yellow-brow, the gifted storyteller; and many more.

Review:

"One of the truly classic ethnographies in American anthropology. It is based on the extensive fieldwork that Lowie did beginning in 1907 and continuing through 1931. The study is clear, well-written, and broadly informative.... "[ The Crow Indians] is also an excellent presentation of the theoretical presumptions, methods, and world views of mid-century American anthropology."

"İT¨his is perhaps the most well-rounded contemporary . . . account of traditional American Indian life on the Great Plains. . . . It's a worthy addition to its publisher's list, which contains the most important collection of books on western and American Indian history."-Benjamin Schwarz, "The Atlantic Monthly." -- Benjamin Schwarz "The Atlantic Monthly"
