Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the way in which social identities are affirmed through the daily act of greeting, and in the practice of daily life. This is followed by a detailed description of the social relations of agrarian production, which are central to the practice of daily life. In Brikama people are motivated to retain membership in sinkirolu and compounds because of the exigencies of consumption and the relationship between personal achievement, financial investment and social identity. Adult farmers can generally rely on the use of child farm labour. This chapter has examined the structure, lay-out, composition and centrality of the compound as a place in which to eat, sleep, socialise, procreate, pray and, in the case of women and girls, fulfill domestic labour obligations and expectations about appropriate gendered behaviour.

Keywords: agrarian production; Brikama; sinkirolu; social relations
