"Stanley Walens examines the fundational principles of Kwakiutl world view and morality from within the context of a Kwakiutl, rather than a Western, intellectual universe. He shows that Kwakiutl concepts of structure and process are articulated through a set of oral, assimilative metaphors by which the Kwakiutl define their identities, their model of human society, and the place of man and culture within the natural universe."
