Shipibo : SE26( )

in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Shipibo occupy the central Río Ucayali region of eastern Peru and its major western tributaries. This file consists of twenty-four documents, three in Spanish, and the remaining twenty-one in English. The major time focus for these studies ranges from the 1950s to the 1980s. Most of the works consist of community studies centering around villages located in the Pisqui and Ucayali River areas of Peru (e.g., the villages of Nuevo Eden, Panaillo, Paococha, Yarinacocha, Roboya, and San Francisco de Yarinacocha). There is no single comprehensive work providing ethnographic coverage for all the Shipibo in Peru. The two works by Eakin, however -- one in Spanish and the second an updated version of the first but in English -- do provide a wide range of cultural data on the Shipibo of the Ucayali River area. In addition to these, Behrens (1988) provides comparable information on the village of Nuevo Eden, located at the headwaters of the Pisqui River. Other major topics discussed in this file are food, food production, agriculture, diet, the Shipibo ceramic industry, fertility and contraception, puberty rites, and kinship behavior and kinship terminology
