Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Weigand examines five modern Indian groups (Mexicaneros, Tequales, Coras, Huicholes, and Tepecanos) and one historic Indian group (Caxcanes) of the highland barranca zone of Jalisco, Nayarit, and Zacatecas to discuss their origins and explore the evolution of their cultures. He uses ethnographic, ethnohistoric, and archaeological data in his pursuit of this objective.
