Explorations in Ethnic Studies
Jesse Green, a professor of English at Chicago State University, has brought together in this volume, with appropriate explanatory materials, selections from the published and unpublished writings of Frank Hamilton Cushing. The collection deals with several things: autobiographical materials (about 120 pages); description of Zuñi life and beliefs (about 220 pages); and materials about the relation between Zuñi and White America (much of the autobiographical section, a brief description of visits to the East by several Zuñi, most of the brief foreword by anthropologist Fred Eggan, and much of Green’s more than 60 pages of introductions.) The volume is handsomely illustrated, with six photographs and over 60 drawings of aspects of Zuñi and its life; it also has maps of Zuñi and the Southwest and a selected bibliography which is evenly divided between works by or about Cushing and works about Zuñi. Unhappily, it does not have an index.
