AbstractThis is a documentary study of the formative years of Native American anthropologist, Edward P. Dozier (1916-1971). The research is based on the Edward P. Dozier Papers in the Arizona State Museum Archives, University of Arizona. Edward Pascual Dozier (Awa Tsideh) spent his early years, from his 1916 birth in Santa Clara Pueblo until his 1952 doctoral degree in anthropology, assimilating into the pluralistic society of the Southwest. Although enculturated as a Tewa, he also interacted with local Roman Catholic Hispanic communities in New Mexico. As a young man, Dozier encountered many aspects of Anglo American culture such as a formal education, wage work, and military service during World War II. His future development as a professional academic anthropologist specializing in Southwestern ethnology and linguistics was also influenced by his Anglo father Thomas Sublette Dozier, community studies researcher Elizabeth Shepley Sergeant, and Santa Claran ethnographer Dr. W. W. Hill.
