Abstract

The wi’igita (vi’ikita) ceremonial is the most complex, and involves more participants, than any other in the Papago culture. It has been partially observed by several persons, but never in its entirety, and an attempt is made herein to correlate these various observations into a coherent whole and to describe the entire process of organizing and presenting the wi’igita ceremonial. The wi’igita at Achi, once held at approximately four-year intervals, is much more elaborate than the smaller, annual wi’igita held at Quitobac in Sonora. The two ceremonies are compared.
