Primates of Park Avenue CHAPTER ONE Comme Il Faut Fieldnotes Environment and ecology The island is a geographically, culturally, and politically isolated landmass roughly seven times longer than it is wide The climate is temperate, with relatively harsh winters and extremely hot and humid summers that, in recent years, approximate tropical conditions due in part to two centuries of intensive land clearing and industrial practices The islands longitude is 404342 N, and its latitude is 735939 W Island dwellers live in a state of ecological releaseresources such as food and water are abundant and easily procured disease is minimal there is no predation Living in a niche characterized by literally unprecedented abundance, untethered from hardship, the wealthiest islanders are able to invest heavily in each and every offspring and to invent elaborate and complex social codes and rites, the observance of which are time , labor , and resource intensive In spite of the extraordinary abundance of food, water, and other resources island wide, there is persistent and marked poverty in some areas The isolation, extreme population density, and vast discrepancies in wealth, as well as traditionally gender scripted roles and behaviors around child rearing and work, may inform and in part account for many of the strange seeming behaviors of the wealthiest island dwellers, discussed in the following pages Island dwellings The islands inhabitants are primarily vertical dwellers, making their homes directly on top of one another in structures of finely ground stone Living in these vertical villages allows inhabitants to maximize physical space, a precious commodity in short supply on their tiny and remarkably densely populated island In some locations, particularly where the wealthiest islanders reside, these vertical villages are notably restrictive, with a secretive council of elders presiding over who will and will not be allowed to live there Scouting out a dwelling is one of the most labor intensive practices of the female members of the tribe I studiedmost often the task is undertaken by primaparas Almost without exception, dwelling shamans guide these women in their quests for homeswhich are also quests for identity The shamans offer specialized knowledge, counsel, and emotional support throughout this costly, protracted, and painstaking initiation process Geographical origins of islanders Island dwellers have heterogeneous geographical origins Many dispersed at sexual maturity from their natal groups in distant, smaller, and even rural villages, immigrating to the island for enhanced professional, sexual, and marital prospects Other island dwellers are indigenous their status is higher than that of the nonautochthonous residents, particularly if they were raised in certain corners of the island or attended particular learning huts while growing up there Beliefs of and about islanders Whether they are autochthonous or migrs, island dwellers are believed by outsiders, many visitors, and their countrymen to harbor haughty attitudes about themselves and their island They are known throughout the land for their brusqueness intellectual gifts dazzling adornment practices and acumen in barter, trade, and negotiation Increasingly, their trade is in invisible ideas and abstractions, enhancing the sense that they have privileged knowledge and even magical powers The journeys and tribulations of those who move to the island and struggle to succeed there are the stuff of legend, literallythere exists a long oral and written tradition about the supposedly indomitable and unique spirit of people who are able to make it there Once they have established themselves on the island, it is said, they can make it anywhere Resource acquisition and distribution On the whole, the island dwellers are the richest in the entire nation, living untethered from the environmental constraints that have such a profound impact on life history courses in other habitats worldwide Obtaining adequate calories for themselves and their children, the main ecological challenge to parents worldwide and throughout our evolutionary prehistory, is a simple given for wealthy island dwellers However, as in many industrial and postindustrial societies, fathers of the very traditionally gender scripted tribe I studied tend to focus on the job of provisioning their wives and families with less tangible resources, including financial, social, and cultural capital While many island dwelling females work outside the home, during the childbearing and child rearing years, many wealthy female islanders believe it is their role to remain home with their children, where they are often assisted by alloparentsindividuals other than parents who take on parental roles They call these alloparents housekeepers, nannies, and caregivers Island organization The island is organized, in the minds of island dwellers, into four quadrants Up, Down, Right, and Left The Up and Down areas are believed to be markedly distinctwith Up being preferable for raising children and Down being considered primarily a place for pre reproductives, cultural outsiders, feasting, and ecstatic nighttime rites Islanders further divide their island into left and right hemispheres Left and Right, like Up and Down, are believed to have differenteven polar oppositecharacteristics Left is believed to be casual and progressive, in contrast to Rights perceived formality and conservatism.An eye popping insider s guide People An amusing, perceptive and, at
