Abstract

The aim of this paper shall be, not simply to catalog the aboriginal uses of cacti in the Southwest, but to attempt to show their value to the aborigines as food, in general, and medical uses, ceremonial import, and their significance in myth and legend, in short, the place they occupied in southwestern life.
