Question and answer
Q: If you were visiting and studying the Yanomamo, describe what you would have done to prepare yourself for possible culture shock. Describe a personal experience you have had where you experienced
culture shock. What components of culture were you shocked by? Be specific. Explain how understanding the major components of culture is important in a situation such as the one you or Napoleon Chagnon experienced.
A: Chagnon is best known for his long-term ethnographic field work among the Yanomam?, his contributions to evolutionary theory in cultural anthropology, and to the study of warfare. [ The Yanomamo are a society of indigenous tribal Amazonians that live in the border area between Venezuela and Brazil.[2] Working primarily in the headwaters of the upper Siapa and upper Mavaca Rivers, Chagnon
conducted fieldwork among these people from the mid-1960s until the latter half of 1990s. Because the Yanomam? people could not pronounce his last name, they nicknamed him "Shaki", the closest pronunciation they could approximate, which also seemed appropriate because Chagnon was constantly asking questions, and "Shaki" means "pesky bee". A major focus of his research was the collection of genealogies of the residents of the villages that he visited, and from these he would analyze patterns of relatedness, marriage patterns, cooperation, and settlement pattern histories. Applying this genealogical approach as a basis for investigation, he is one of the early pioneers of the fields of sociobiology and human behavioral ecology. ]
