The Journal of California Anthropology
On Kroeberian and Post-Kroeberian California Ethnology
- Author(s): Kunkel, Peter H
- et al.
I have just read Albert Elsasser's (1976) review of Native Californians: A Theoretical Retrospective, edited by Lowell Bean and Thomas Blackburn. As author of one of the articles in this collection, I am puzzled by Elsasser's reference to "certain authors" in the collection (including me) as "post-Kroeberian." Furthermore, I wish to protest the out-of-context, fragmental quotation from my article, by which Elsasser misrepresented my attitude toward Kroeber and the basic "older" data on California ethnography.
