Leland C. Wyman

Leland C. Wyman, an outstanding authority on Navajo religion, extended the research of his scholarship from his primary field of physiology to anthropology, art, folklore, and folk literature. In the early 1930s he began to write on Navajo ceremonialism and mythology, and soon teamed up with anthropologists and other specialists to publish on Navajo medicine, ethnobotany, ethnoentomology, psychology, and art. He passed away in 1988.
