Product Description

Waka Aoyama's "INTIMATE JOURNEY" to Sama-Bajau Communities in Isla Bella in Davao City took place in the space of twenty-years during which time she had acquired facility with the language and intimacy with the people and culture. The book is an "ethnography of sympathy," using narratives and oral life histories that allowed this ethnographer, and her readers and the Sama-Bajau themselves, the experience of "living with the other." In a unique format of seven "independent letters" to readers and the subjects, they centered on livelihood, local politics, and faith among the Sama-Bajau. Little is known about the Sama-Bajau - this book scholarly book fills that gap. – Bernardita Reyes Churchill, President, Philippine National Historical Society, Inc. Chair, International Philippine Studies Conferences (ICOPHIL)
