Titel: Stealing the Water of Life: The Historicity of Contemporary Social Relationships
Auteur: Hoëm, Ingjerd
Verschenen in: History and anthropology
Paginering: Jaargang 16 (2005) nr. 3 pagina's 293-305
Jaar: 2005-09
Inhoud: Pacific anthropology has predominantly concentrated on documenting the pre-contact past or an acculturated present. This article explores an alternative focus on contemporary relationships, seen as both exhibiting historicity and agentive power. The control over scarce but vitally important resources, such as land and water, is the responsibility of the village leadership in the Tokelau atolls. The regulation of social behaviour establishes fecundity and agency in a manner that lends order to the universe. However, the achievement of a position of command, in particular over rights to land, is dependent upon knowledge of the past and of genealogical connections in the present. Claims to positions are commonly challenged, and this dynamic of contested ascendancy means that the past is always significantly present, although in different shapes.
