Hungry Lightning: Notes of a Woman Anthropologist in Venezuela

By Pei-Lin Yu | Go to book overview

PREFACE

Hungry Lightning is an informal, personal account of events that occurred during anthropological research on the Pumé Indians of Venezuela in the years 1992-1993. For the privacy of the Pumé and their neighbors, I have changed local place names in the text. No scientific data are presented in this work. For scientific findings related to this research project, please see Russell D. Greaves's doctoral dissertation, entitled "Ethnoarchaeological investigation of subsistence mobility, resource targeting, and technological organization among Pumé foragers of Venezuela" ( University of New Mexico, 1997).

This book could not have been written without the help of hundreds of people. I thank you all, and I'd like to personally acknowledge some of you here:

--To the Pumé of Doro Aná, for their humor, hospitality, kindness, family feeling, and tolerance in the face of constant invasions of privacy into their everyday lives. With their help, I learned a great deal about how people organize their lives and the world around them. The Pumé fed our research group, taught us their language, built houses for us, carried our gear, helped us survive, and ultimately adopted us as family. I owe them a debt of gratitude that is impossible to describe.
