The rest of the time, I would be walking around the village, meeting people and trailing them about the place, and frequently being invited into INTRODUCTION 25 other houses. Being identified as the adoptive child of Ndǔ Pin gave me an instant route into village networks, determining which church I should regularly attend, on whose rice farms I should help, which houses I could ask for water when mine ran out, and so on. 16 Armed with a shaky grasp of Malay and a cheerful capacity for humiliation, I began to acquaint myself with Kampung Benuk through daily walks, visits to Paka’s mini-museum, church attendance, various rice-related activities, and fictive kin connections.
By identifying and gathering them under the heading of “native exegesis,” my aim is not to reify them but to work and think through them—just as my Bidayuh acquaintances do. This brings me to a final point. In the places that we study, anthropologists are not the only theorists and philosophers around. ” In this respect, far from remaining “outside the object of study,” I am “arguing within the same world” as many Bidayuhs (Spencer 1990: 288, 290; italics in original). Rather than trying to hold “my” theoretical conceptions of “culture” at bay from “theirs,” then, this book situates both anthropological and Bidayuh notions within a single analytical framework.
This brings us to an important methodological and analytical point. In the following chapters, the village will crop up constantly as a conceptual and descriptive unit. By using it thus, I do not mean to reify Kampung Benuk as that artificially bounded, homogeneous Village of classical ethnography, but to mirror my acquaintances’ own tendency to talk about it as a distinctive place and their key unit of corporate identity and belonging. During fieldwork, I was struck by their manifest keenness to assert how different Bidayuh communities were from each other—and, by implication, how much better Benuk was than anywhere else.
