Abstract

Discusses the village of Gu Achi on the Papago Native American reservation in south-western Arizona, with a descriptive account of how children of this village are taught the behavior forms that are held to be customary and acceptable by the adult members of the community. The socialization process is described in its three basic aspects : the major behavior forms valued by the adults, and the means by which adults transmit to the children these approved behavior forms, and the manner of participation by the individual child in the socialization process.--Introduction.
