Traditions of the Arapaho


Anthropologists George A. Dorsey (1868-1931) and Alfred L. Kroeber (1876-1960) joined forces to record and preserve the rich cultural traditions of the Arapaho Indians. This result of their collaboration was first published in 1903 and bears witness to the religious feeling, imagination, and humor of the Arapaho. Marvelous and mundane entities populate these vibrant tales, where spirit permeates everything, and everything has meaning.
