ANTHROPOLOGICAL RECORDS: Mohave Pottery

Anthropological Records Vol. 16, No.1

A. L. Kroeber and Michael J. Harner

University of California Press, Berkley, 1955


The pottery described in this report was collected fifty years ago by Kroeber and is all in the University of California Museum of Anthropology.

It is described for ethnological comparability by Kroeber, with emphasis on use, shape, painted design, and names of designs; and for archaeological utilization by Harner, with special attention to ware, temper, firing, hardness, forms, paint and color, and technological consideration generally.  The two parts were written independently. They overlap here and there, especially on vessel shapes, after a few duplications were excised. It has seemed advantageous, after adding a brief concordance of terms employed by the two authors. To let the independent treatments of shapes stand double.

No comparisons with other native ceramic arts, recent or ancient, were undertaken.
