Abstract / Summary
Thirteen typewritten pages, numbered 50 through 61, contain a discussion of the complex social interactions among the Trobriand Islanders as they fill their yam house, possibly as part of a draft of 'Coral Gardens and Their Magic.' Malinowski imagines a system in which one could observe them, with each individual wearing a multicolored identity card indicating clan and other kinship relationships. A note at the top, written in purple pencil, reads, 'pp 50-61 will not appear in The Book.' Other notes, apparently written earlier in blue pencil, read, 'This may be used in Pt. II, Social Structure' and '3. The Colored Labels in Gardening and Harvest.'
