A Borneo Childhood:

Enculturation in Dusuan Society

-

Thomas Rhys Williams

This work summarises the work of the author and his wife in trying to discover how aboriginal Dusun children in North Borneo grew up and took on the cultural norms of their society. During their two year stay in two different villages, they were particularly keen to discover in what ways, if any, such enculturation differed from similar processes in other societies. That said, the author goes to particular lengths in making observations rather than mixing in theory. 137 pages whose contents include

  • 1 - The Setting of Enculturation,
  • 2 - Methods of Study,
  • 3 - Conception, Pregnancy and Birth,
  • 4 - Infancy,
  • 5 - Childhood Years,
  • 6 - Patterns of Enculturation &
  • 7 - Changes in Enculturation.
  • There are also list of references cited and recommended reading as well as a linguistic chart and black and white photographs.
