AbstractFieldwork for this study coincided with fierce competition between the North Vietnamese-supported Viet Cong insurgents and the United States-backed Republic of Vietnam to win the support of the Rhade. The principal goal of the study was to assist the joint United States–South Vietnamese effort by providing a comprehensive description of the social organization, administrative structure, kinship system, economic organization, and belief system of the Rhade. The results emphasized the persistence of slash-and-burn cultivation as the mainstay of the Rhade economy, and the centrality of women’s roles in descent reckoning, spouse selection, and property inheritance.
