A Story

In this very short story, Alice Walker tells of a young, African American girl who, while gathering flowers, stumbles quite literally upon the body of a dead man. The atmosphere, language and subject matter of the story suggest the southern United States as a setting-sometime in the mid- to late-20th century seems an appropriate time period, though this is far less clear. The contrast between the story's beginning and end is striking. We begin with a light-hearted description of the life of Myop...

Labaw Donggon: Propagating Sulod Society

imagine the continuity of Sulod society with the coming of the ten Bornean datus, from which it would logically have sprung unless the story is patently false. But reading F. Landa Jocano’s Sulod Society, one could see the possibility of convergence. “The range of Sulod kinship structure,” Jocano writes, is six generations upward and another six generations downward. (Jocano 275) This is unusual for a primitive society, especially one that subsists on kaingin, hunting and food gathering alone. A primitive...
