Note on the sources

The bibliography available on the Wauja is relatively small. It comprises three academic theses and a set of small articles covering primarily mythology (Schultz 1965; Schultz & Chiara 1971; Coelho 1980 and 1986; Ireland 1988; Mello 1999, the latter also features an emphasis on music), language (Richards 1973, 1977 and 1988), material culture and visual arts (Lima 1950; Myazaki 1978 and 1981; Coelho 1981, 1988, 1991, 1991-92b, 1993 and 1995; Barcelos Neto 1999, 2000, 2001a, 2001b and 2001c), ritual (Myazaki 1966; Schultz & Chiara 1976 and 1980 and Coelho 1983 and 1991-92a) and politics (Ireland 1991 and 1993).
