Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This brief article resulted from a visit made in 1948, and in part consists of information relayed to the author by the local Catholic missionary in a letter afterward. It continues the story begun in an earlier study of the conflicts which arise in determining a successor to the clan headman with an account of how sorcery (or at least the belief in sorcery) entered the picture. The author maintains that of the three types of sorcery–mild, severe, and deadly–the third is never used and does not exist, though it supposedly enters into the succession crisis.
