Sample text

Conclusion In my exploration of the relationship between ethnographies and novels, I have discovered and described a fine example of an ethnographic novel. The Water House is rich in sociolinguistic, historical, and cultural information. Olinto’s continuous recounting of language patterns, especially for Mariana but also for the rest of his characters, carries information about cultural identity and assimilation. Olinto captures the spirit of the times in Bahia and in Lagos. Finally, without using anthropological techniques or ethnographic discipline, Olinto presents us with a picture rich in political, economic, religious, educational, and general cultural data.

(Deloria, 1988, p. x) When the novel’s protagonist, Blue Bird, prepares to birth her first child, she recalls the fateful day when she was young and a raiding war party disrupted her joyful childhood, killing or dispersing her entire family, except her grandmother. Together these two bereaved people are adopted by a sympathetic Teton camp circle. Soon after that tragedy, when Blue Bird naively elopes with Star Elk, we learn about the various grades of honorable marriage, hers having barely qualified, a fate assuaged by the women’s patience and understanding regarding her motherless circumstance.
