Feasting in Southeast Asia

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter provides an overview of the range of variation in hill tribes in the Southeast Asia culture area. It examines commonalities and differences in subsistence, village and kinship organization, corporate vs. nuclear households, ancestor cults, conflicts, ideology, and political organization. Sources of power and benefits of office holding are explored. A common hill tribe sociopolitical baseline is proposed, and feasts are situated within a holistic context involving all of these factors. The implications of material patterning from feasts are explicitly addressed.

Keywords:   comparative study, hill tribes, corporate groups, conflicts, archaeology, material patterns, political organization, benefits
