1 Political map of the world

2 Cultural groups This European problem that Wagner discusses Imagining others as living in groups analogous to our political system of states or pseudo states. Groups have names Inventory of the empire - polity of diverse peoples and cultures Anthropology grew out of the need (and simple curiosity) to manage these peoples effectively Ethnic groups are self-identified

3 Map of native languages of North Asia

4 N A Languages

5 California

6 Ethnonyms Name learned from Neighbors Eskimo, Koryak, Chukchi Name translates as person or real person Luoravetlan(lorawelat), Nymylan (nymnym) Inuit (Canada), Inupiat (Western Alaska, use Eskimo in English), Yupik (Bering St., Siberia - Eskimos)

7 Groups - ways of classification Physical type (races) Xanthochroic - light complexion Melanochroic - dark complexion Language Culture (habits, religion, traditions)

8 Magyars (Hungarians) European physical type Finno-Ugric Language Eastern European culture

9 European langs

11 New Guinea different language, in many different language families Some peoples New Guineau Highlands practice what amounts to linguistic exogamy Major differences in cultural patterns associated with geography - highland interior vs. lowland coasts

12 Unconscious Patterning of Language Secondary rationalizations more data, not answers Culture in general can be seen as more or less conscious (self-aware)

13 Identities Not necessarily essential or permanent (Wagners house people and people of the base Locke, Rousseau, others - identity is a primary attribute (This stone is this stone and never that one) Personal identities used as basic for symbols of groups

14 Koryak ideas of person Persons include humans, animals, mountains, rocks, spirits, parts of rivers No mind-body dualism Human soul has several components Breath (wuyevi) Soul (uyichit) Shade (wuyelwuyel) A human being you meet is a complex entity of recurrent and unique features

15 Koryak collective identities Greatly influenced by Russian ideas of groups Conscious delineation of ethnic groups, subgroups Unconscious patterning (other means of discussing sociality) provides a more complex picture of residence, cooperation, kinship and friendship
