LOUIS, Anne Sutherland
  • Alliance or descent: the Trumaí Indians of Central Brazil. Man, N.S., vol. 6, n. 1, London 1971, pp. 18-29, 6 figuras. Bibliografia.

Em suas palavras, a autora procura demonstrar "that formal alliance is an important structural relationship among the Trumaí; that the system of alliance depends upon households (and not lineal descent groups) to order the exchange of women; and, finally, that the particular Trumaí arrangement of households is one way of expressing in practice the model of a two-section sistem common to all Upper Xingu tribes" (p. 19).
