What is POMO? No one ever really answered that. As far as this
statement about aggressiveness goes, isn't it still subject to the
observer's interpretation? Nothing of ethnographic field studies is
truly and purely objective because of the anthropologist's own biases.
He always (unintentionally) slants it a little. That's just being
human. In what way are the Yanomamo aggressive? I guess it all depends
on "how" one sees it.
