Kpelle farming through Kpelle eyes

The cultural dimension of development: indigenous knowledge systems: 269-285
Kpelle farming through Kpelle eyes
The paper discusses farming among the Kpelle, an ethnic group from the Gbansu region of central Liberia. It focuses on an area comprising 131 households in a central village and 23 satellite hamlets. The paper suggests that the community is more than just the individuals which comprise it; specifically it is an entity which has a corporate understanding, composed of the knowledge, the attitudes and the beliefs of the individual members.
