Age as a factor in the social organization of the Hare Indian of Fort Good Hope, N.W.T.: R42-3/1962-5E-PDF

"The four basic systems in terms of which the social relations of a society may be organized are: (1) age and sex, (2) socially recognized biological relationship, (3) associational relationships and (4) prestige grading, (cf. Fathauer, 1942: 14). For fourteen weeks during the summer of 1961, field work was carried on among the Hare Indians of Fort Good Hope to discover the existing age and sex groupings and the process of socialization in the movement of the individual from one group into the next. This, it was hoped, would determine the degree to which culture was learned and retained in each phase of the life cycle of the community members."--Introduction.
