      is affiliated as research associate with the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, and has divided her time since 1968 between that location and field residence in an Ojibwa community in Subarctic Ontario. She also has taught in California (UCLA and California State University, North-ridge), taking her Ph.D. degree from Stanford University in 1967 with a concentration in cognitive anthropology.

  • Initial research and writing for this paper was carried out under predoctoral fellowship and field grant from NIMH; constant contact with Ojibwa friends and teachers over the years since 1965 has never failed to add increments of learning and valued experiences; final analysis and writing was aided by research facilities of the Royal Ontario Museum including close consultation with Dr. Edward S. Rogers.
