Summary
This collection of 8 documents provides cultural and historical information, circa 1850 to 1930. Two of the documents are written in English, three are translations from German, and two are translations from Russian. The oldest documents in the collection were compiled by two German scholars, Schrenck and Seeland, who travelled in the Amur region in 1854-1856. Together, their works provide the first systematic attempts at describing the history and culture of the Nivkh (and some of the neighboring ethnic groups). The most comprehensive account of Nivkh society and culture in the collection is by Shternberg, a Russian anthropologist who worked among the Nivkh in 1890-1897. His book provides a detailed description and analysis of Nivkh kinship system, marriage rules, family structure, religion, and economic activities. The collection also includes two other equally old first-hand accounts which add depth to the information on nineteenth century Nivkh society and culture by focusing on specific themes. One is by a German scholar who described pregnancy, childbirth and reproductive health issues as observed in 1895-1905. The other is by a Russian ethnologist who provided a first hand account of hunting practices based on fieldwork conducted in 1931 in different Nivkh villages. The remaining two documents in the collection are published articles by anthropologist Lydia Black who, based on a wide variety of secondary sources in English and Russian, reconsiders some of the earlier arguments in the literature on Nivkh marriage and family life. One of these articles evolved from a dissertation in which Black notes important weaknesses in the ways both Fredrerick Engels and Claude Levi-Strauss interpreted cultural information on Nivkh social organization and family system to build their respective theories. In the second article, Black argues that "wife takers" in Nivkh society did not always possess superior status over "wife givers" as alleged by previous writers. Instead, she argues, status differentials between inter-marrying lineages were often related to land ownership, choice of residence and other contingencies
