Kpelle farming through Kpelle eyes

Kpelle farming through Kpelle eyes

The cultural dimension of development: indigenous knowledge systems: 269-285

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.
