Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Adler examines kivas as integrative facilities used by a community to reduce scalar stress. When communities are smaller the kiva use-group is smaller and there are fewer restrictions on who may use the facility and on how the facility is used. In other words the earlier facilities were used for a variety of activities, not just ritual ones. Adler discusses integrative facilities in 28 different cultures and compares them to early Anasazi kivas.
