Hi John. Your posting reminds me of an encounter I had with a native
Samoan while I was in Samoa some years ago. He said, "Why don't you
anthropologists write about your own cultures. Why keep messing about
with ours?" My answer:"Anthropologists are curious about and interested
in all cultures. And, if you wish, you can write ab out the culture of
the U.S.A." That was ev idently a new thought for him. How's your book
coming along? Best regards. Ruby Rohrlich
