Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This article is a continuation of Aspelin's previous article in which he challenges Levi-Strauss's description of the Nambiquara as seasonal nomads, primarily substing on hunting and gathering. Triangulating information from a wide variety of archival sources and his own extensive fieldwork, Aspelin argues that the Nambiquara have a long experience with agriculture and permant villages.
