Hello, and welcome to my home. My name is Chagnon and I am an anthropologist. Tonight I have been preparing to depart on a journey to study the Yanamamo tribe who is indigenous to South America, I aim to learn more about them and provide the world with my findings!
I had spent severeal hours on a boa down the river to get to the yanamamo. At first, I didn't see anything. I was a bit confused. After a long six hour trip- I finally arrived! I was filled with excitement and confusion as the world I once knew slowly drifted away.
When I arrived at the village, I met two twins who would be my guides. The lack of privacy was apalling to me- as they all lived so so close. I couldn't decide where to sleep, so they showed me to a small hut which I grew to feel very exosed in.
Upon my arrival, the yanamamo where confused. They often demanded things of me, specially use of my supplies. Eventually I ignored them, but to no avail they persisted. Eventually, we found a way to coexist . It was hard though, to find a equal pattern between us. I was not used to the incessant begging.
The second shock that came to me was that it was appropriate for the men to hit their wives as way to show dominance/superiority. Though the US has gender roles, it was still shockingly intense to see its aggression.
