Abstract:

This ethnographic research focuses on traditional forms of reciprocity within social networks and examines changes that have occurred within these reciprocal aid systems as a consequence of rapid Westernization. The research was conducted on Guam, an island located in the western Pacific region. The Chamorros, Guam's indigenous population, are the subjects of this study. This qualitative study highlights the Chamorro tradition of reciprocal aid witnessed during events surrounding the life cycle (i.e., birth, marriage, death) when network relations are activated and reciprocity ensues. Data collection methods include informal interviewing, participant-observation, the collection of life histories, and documentation of family genealogies. Differences explored during the four-year research endeavor include variations between the genders, across age cohorts, with chronological placement in the family and expectations associated with one's place of residence.

Also explored were distinctions that corresponded with one's level of formal education and comprehension of the Chamorro language.
