Abstract:

This collection of 3 documents, all in English, is about the Abipón, a nomadic people occupying the Gran Chaco region of Paraguay and Argentina. The primary work is that of the Jesuit, Father Martin Dobrizhoffer, who lived among this group for eighteen years in the mid-eighteenth century. Dobrizhoffer was a keen observer of Abipón behavior and customs and the information he recorded forms the basis of what little we know about this now extinct group. The Dobrizhoffer document deals primarily with various aspects of ethnography, covering such topics as territory occupied, historical origins, physical appearance and characteristics, religion, tribal divisions, leadership (chiefs, captains or caciques), food, clothing, language, marriage customs, games, diseases, shamans (jugglers), death and mortuary customs, fauna, and warfare. The study by Metraux is a brief summary of the history of the Abipón, their relations with the Spanish and other aboriginal groups, and of missionary activity among them. This document, abstracted from the Handbook of South American Indians (Bulletin 143, Vol. 1), largely duplicates information already contained in Dobrizhoffer.
