Abstract:
En publicaciones previas sobre los seris, frecuentes referencias a distintos grupos de seris señalan divisiones tribales históricas en algún nivel. Una investigación reciente entre los seris ha determinado la existencia anterior de seis bandas que incluyeron tres grupos dialectales. Tres de las bandas se subdividieron en clanes. Estas seis bandas, cuya formación puede haber sido causada mayormente por conflictos internos, finalmente fueron asoladas y reducidas a un solo grupo por la devastación producida por conflictos externos.
Description:
In previous publications about the Seris, frequent references to distinct groups of Seris indicate the existence of historic tribal divisions on some level. A recent investigation among the Seris determined the previous existence of six bands, which included three dialectal groups. Three of the bands were subdivided in clans. These six bands, whose formation could have been caused principally by internal conflicts, eventually were crushed and reduced to one single group by means of destruction caused by external conflicts.
