Earlier drafts of this paper were read by Terry Reynolds and Louise Lamphere at the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association in Denver, November 1965. The authors conducted research during the summer of 1963 while they were members of the Harvard-Columbia Field School, Dr. B. N. Colby, Director. Funds were provided by the National Science Foundation. During the summer of 1964, additional data were collected at Rimrock (Louise Lamphere received assistance from a National Institute of Mental Health Fellowship). The Rimrock files (Museum of New Mexico, Santa Fe), land allotment files (B.I.A., Gallup Area), genealogies, census material, and residence maps have been used to supplement the ethnographic field work. We would like to thank David F. Aberle, T. O. Beidelman, and Richard Kluckhohn for valuable comments and criticisms.
