Robert Lowie (1883-1957)

Sobre o autor:


"His knowledge of South American Indians was stimulated by the visit to Berkeley in 1927 of Baron Erland Nordenskiold, who until that time was virtually the only ethnologist to have worked with the South American Indians. A few years later, Lowie happened to discover a German-born resident of Brazil, Curt Nimuendaju. This remarkable man had visited some of the least known tribes in eastern Brazil, the Ge-speaking Indians, and had written extremely full manuscripts on their culture. Lowie translated these into English. His interest in the general area became a lasting one, such that he was a major contributor to, and editor of, the Tropical Forest volume of the Handbook of South American Indians."
