Elibron Classics. Digitized replica of 1897 edition published in Washington.
This is an illustrated edition.
The Book is Anthropologist Franz Boas’ most important discussion of the Kwakiutl. He used the name Kwakiutl to refer to an ethno-linguistic group of 28 tribes. It came from the name of the tribe that Boas did most of his work with, the Kwagu’ł or Kwagyeulth, at Fort Rupert. The Kwakiutls participated in dances in which people would wear masks and costumes and tell ancient stories.
