The Eastern Timbira

Excerpt

Under the auspices of the Institute of Social Sciences of the, Snr. Curt Nimuendajú, of Belém do Pará, has been for several years investigating various little-known groups of the interior of Brazil, some of which he had previously visited. A number of brief reports have been published to keep ethnologists informed as to some discoveries of major import, and a longer treatise entitled The Apinayé, that is, Western Timbira, has been printed (see Bibliography) under the joint editorship of Dr. John M. Cooper and the translator. Another monograph, on the Šerénte, was published more recently in the series financed by the Frederick Webb Hodge Anniversary Publication Fund. The monograph herewith presented describes primarily the Ra+̨mkō+́kamekra, but the author has given such ample data on the history and ethnography of all related tribes known that the title Eastern Timbira seems fully warranted. In the translator's judgment this work represents one of the outstanding achievements among studies of South American Indians.
