Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This paper begins with a commentary on the
individualization of production and ownership in Tapirape society which is balanced by
patterns of exchange, both of an ordinary day-to-day nature, and other forms connected with
more formalized or ceremonial behavior. This article concentrates on the latter. Shapiro
then examines ceremonial exchanges involving food, with particular reference to the 'feast
groups' or tãtãopãwa, and then discusses the manner in which redistribution of private
property such as weapons, household utensils, ornaments and other items of personal use,
takes place in the society (p. 2).
