(p.118) Chapter 6 Indigenous Reactions
Anthropology's Global Histories

Rainer F. Buschmann

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter considers indigenous responses to the ethnographic frontier. In other words, while the preceding chapters chronicled how ethnographic involvement in the Pacific shaped German anthropology at home and abroad, the present chapter looks at indigenous reactions to the German appropriation of material culture. Arguing for a dual conceptualization of the anthropological scheme, that is, a Western and Pacific one, it traces selected incidents of indigenous counterethnography in the western isles of the Bismarck Archipelago and on the island of New Ireland. These indigenous attempts at resistance are an important counterpoint to the “colonial projects” descending on German New Guinea.
