Research on the Navajo Indian Reservation was supported by the Frederick G. Voss Anthropology and Archaeology Fund of the Department of Anthropology, The American Museum of Natural History; by the Undergraduate Ruearch Participation Program, National Science Foundation (grant number GY-4415); and by the Urban Corps. Mrs. Diana Rochman, supported by the Hunter College work-study program financed jointly by Hunter College of the City University of New York and the American Museum of Natural History, assisted us in analyzing the data. The students who assisted us on the Navajo Reservation were Miss Nancy Bonvillain (Columbia University), Miss Mary Ann Castle (Herbert H. Lehman College, City University of New York), Miss Helen Fisher (New York University), Miss Judith Kopecky (Barnard College), and Miss Laura Lein (Swarthmore College). We thank these students and organizations for their assistance.
