The 1870 ghost dance by Cora Alice Du Bois( )

The 1870 Ghost Dance was a significant but too often disregarded transformative historical movement with particular impact on the Native peoples of northern California. The spiritual energies of this "great wave," as Peter Nabokov has called it, have passed down to the present day among Native Californians, some of whose contemporary individual and communal lives can be understood only in light of the dance and the complex religious developments inspired by it

Alorese OF05 ( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Alorese live on the Island of Alor, in East Nusa Tenggara Province of Indonesia. Alor is noted as an area of tremendous cultural and linguistic diversity. Alorese estimate between 48 and 60 mutually unintelligible Austronesian languages are spoken on Alor, and many of the inhabitants speak Bahasa Indonesia, the national language of Indonesia. The people in the highland live in small villages, practice Christianity, and their major subsistence activity is agriculture. The people on the coast tend to be Muslim. This collection consists of four documents. Three were written by the American anthropologist Cora DuBois shortly before the outbreak of World War II. All of DuBois' field work was done from 1935 to 1940 in village of Atimelang in central Alor. DuBois' monograph, The people of Alor, is probably the best source of ethnographic information on the Alorese people although it is heavily oriented toward the basic personality structure of the Alorese and their personality development. Some of the ethnographic data contained in this work deal with the food quest, concepts of disease, relationship to the supernatural, marriage, and social relations. The fourth document in this collection is by Scarduelli. It deals with the symbolic organization of space and social identity in the village of Alor Kecil, located at the western tip of Alor Island, and is based on the field work Scarduelli did there during the 1980s. This document includes data on political organization, lineages, rituals of circumcision, marriage exchanges, traditional history, and community structure
