1. Imagine that you are a cultural anthropologist preparing to conduct fieldwork.  How will you maintain ethical research (and writing) practices?  What is in your toolkit?

2. Would you rather conduct ethnographic research in 2017 or 1933?  Meaning, would you rather work in a place like the south Pacific (like many of the people described in this chapter) with the ‘toolkit’ available in 1933, or the toolkit available in 2017.  Defend your opinion.

3. Discuss your opinion of the ‘Nacirema’ as you read the scientific article about them.
