The fieldwork on which this article is based was carried out in the villages Christiaankondre and Langamankondre, on the Surinam shore of the Maroni, near its mouth. I am indebted to the Netherlands Foundation for the Advancement of Tropical Research (WOTRO) for making the fieldwork possible. I am indebted to Professor A. J. F. Köbben, University of Amsterdam, for reading an earlier draft of this paper.
