Hand clasping and arm folding among African Negroes



Hand clasping and arm folding among African Negroes



Human Biology 38(3): 175-179



Bantus from Angola, Portuguese Western Africa were tested (1357 males, 74 females). The frequency of R handclasping ranged from 60 to 64.7% for male age groups and from 44.4 to 70.0% for female age groups and for R armfolding 51.4 to 78.6% and 42.3 to 55.6%. These figures are similar to those for Negroes in Brazil but in this sample the frequency decreased with age which is different from other findings. Selective influences are suggested.
