Summary
This collection of 12 documents, all in English, cover Tallensi cultural, economic and environmental information circa 1930 to 1994. Most are by Meyer Fortes, a leading British social anthropologist who conducted extensive fieldwork among the Tallensi in 1934-1937 and 1971. His works provide detailed first hand description and analysis of Tallensi society with particular emphasis on clans and lineages, kinship and social relations, and religious practices including divination, ancestor worship and moral life. Other documents in the collection compliment Fortes's seminal works by examining other themes relating to land tenure and settlement patterns. Most of the information in these documents was collected from a locality called Tongo which Fortes described as the biggest settlement in Tallensi land and home to the heads of one of the dominant lineages
