Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document In this paper, Palacio examines household structure and inter-household networks in a poor Garifuna village. He discusses the sharing of food, money, and kin, i.e., fosterage, among households based on their kin ties and obligations. He argues how such relationships and practices facilitate the flow of basic necessities within the community.
