Witchcraft is defined by Clyde Kluckhohn (1905-60) as "the influencing of events by super-natural techniques that are socially disapproved," and his description and analysis of Navaho ideas and actions related to witchcraft illuminate the ways in which society deals with the ambition for power, the aggressiveness, and the anxiety of its members.
