1. Malinowski argued that the primary goal of the anthropologist is “to grasp the native’s point of view, his relation to life, to realize his vision of his world” (p 25). How does he suggest anthropologists go about this? What methodological approaches does he propose, and why? Be as specific as possible. Using one of the following readings as an example, briefly explain why this goal is so difficult: “Body Rituals of the Venireman,” “Shakespeare in the Bush,” “Deep Play: the Balinese Cockfight,” “Grief and the Headhunters Rage.” How might the author of the example you chose critique Malinowski?
2. How would Catiline and Schliemann respond to the claims that the Seminoles and the Cuppa (respectively) are losing their culture? Explain some of the ways in which the Seminoles in Florida and the Cuppa in El Mayor maintain and express their cultural identity in the face of external governmental and economic pressures? Use specific examples.
