Abstract 0

This is an account of how families split: when the family members were so numerous that the house could not accommodate them anymore. (In more recent times: the 1970s, families had to split when marriage was imposed on the Na and traditional lifestyle was forbidden: the food rations of families were cut until they adopted the new, 'modern' family structure, with one man, his wife and children under the same roof. The narrative carefully avoids mention of these events in recent history.)
