” This Inventory, if not an exhaustive listing of the rich diversity of the materials, is nonetheless a definite invitation for researchers and institutions engaged in conservation of tribal culture for a future exploration.

The present volume is the base-line inventory and, it is hoped, will be followed by supplementary volumes in the future.”
