Introduce your students to the fascinating field of anthropology. Through vivid documentary, visuals, and perceptive narration, the set first outlines different kinds of anthropological studies and poses some of the questions anthropologists ask in examining societies. Kinship and family, power and social structure, and ritual and religion are also addressed. The program then surveys the Macha Indians of Bolivia as a miniature anthropological field study to illustrate the general points already discussed. The teacher's guide includes extensive discussion questions. Introduction: Defines terms; provides background of Western anthropology; problems of primitive peoples in adapting to the modern world. A Field Study: Examines the Macha Indians to demonstrate how an anthropological study is carried out and the questions that are asked.
