1932

Abstract

This perspective article explores the ways in which I was doing fieldwork without being aware of it from the time I began to speak and spoke English to my mother and Spanish to my father. This life experience taught me central concepts in anthropology, such as cultural relativity, and made me fascinated with the field before I was formally able to study it.
