On the Trail of the Pigmies: An Anthropological Exploration Under the Cooperation of the American Museum of Natural History and American Universities (Classic Reprint) Details

Excerpt from On the Trail of the Pigmies: An Anthropological Exploration Under the Cooperation of the American Museum of Natural History and American Universities

It may not be out Of place to explain that some of the facts here described that may seem strangest to a lay reader are amply vouched for by independent authority. Thus, the avoidance Of the mother-in-law noted among the vvakamba has been repeatedly reported from various Bantu groups. Indeed, the cus tom is widely spread among the aborigines Of both Australia and North America. Similarly, the extravagant fear Of defilement encountered by Father Vandenbergh in Kikuyu territory appears with equal promi nence in Mr. And Mrs. Routledge's narrative. Finally, the description Of Masai sexual life is paralleled, so far as essentials go, in the ex tensive treatises of Hollis and Merker.
