"Sketches the history and culture of the Tucson area Yaqui and contains case studies of a number of the informants. What constituted 'Yaquiness' in Pascua was mainly a common language, a shared historical tradition, and an aberrant form of Catholic Christianity laced with Yaqui concepts. This clearly and concisely written book is very important on its own terms both as an early example of the use of life histories in ethnology and as a significant contribution to Yaqui studies." --Choice
"Spicer's People of Pascua is well written and well edited. Both the editorial preface and the updatings in the end notes are clear and succinct."
--Canadian Journal of Native Studies
