In Two Crows Denies It, R. H. Barnes undertakes an ambitious historical analysis of anthropological scholarship about Omaha kinship systems. His ground breaking work offers a critique of this established scholarship, including the work of Lévi-Strauss, Dorsey, and Fletcher.

In comparing the primary and secondary accounts of Omaha descent, relationship, and naming systems, Barnes reveals the dissonance between the reality of Omaha society and the scholarship that has formed around it. Not only does he put forth a new and more realistic interpretation of Omaha sociology specifically, but in so doing he provides a reinterpretation of an aspect of anthropological theory. This edition includes a new introduction by Raymond J. DeMallie.

Review:

"An important contribution to the anthropological literature of American Indian social systems."--American Indian Culture and Research Journal--American Indian Culture and Research Journal

"A major contribution to kinship studies and one which will certainly lead many of us--including myself--to qualify their interpretations."--Claude Lévi-Strauss--Claude Lévi-Strauss

"A major contribution to the study of kinship, comparative ethnology, and the sociology of anthropological knowledge. The book deserves careful attention by anyone interested in the nature of anthropological inquiry."--Plains Anthropologist--Plains Anthropologist
