    How about Olmec?  It is felt to be the "mother" culture of Mexico dating back as to as early as 1500BC.  There is a an important ancient Olmec settlement in La Venta.  My son is working in an archeologic dig in Los Soldados looking for relics from this culture.

      I went to a really good museum exposition of them in San Francisco.  They are really impressive.

      Thanks, I will add that to my list! Would it be easy to find the information I needed for the ethnographic study from the internet alone?

    I did one on the Zulu that was fascinating, also the Australian Aborigines are interesting. If you are in a cultural author class chances are you have read the nacarima paper, if you haven't look it up and read it.  To do a paper on the American culture would be cool and difficult.

    The Mbuti pygmies of the Belgian-Congo are a fascinating people.  Colin Turnbull wrote a wonderful study on them, The Forest People.
