Archival Research on Hunter-Gatherers´ Religions in Borneo


  • Gotzone Gray


This research focuses on religious changes among hunter-gatherers in Borneo. A two month archival research was carried out that will be used in the understanding of the relationship between traditional beliefs and new religious systems within hunter-gatherer economies. The project pursues two goals. The first goal is to gather information on hunter-gatherers´ traditional cosmology. This includes a compilation of sacred elements, such as myths, rituals, sacred materials and behaviours that may offer information on hunter-gatherers´ religious systems. The second goal is to explore the economic changes that have developed among hunter-gatherer communities throughout the last century. Thus, the economy and the sacred are the variables that will be considered in the understanding of religious changes among hunter-gatherers in tropical areas. [Working Paper Series No. 14]. URL:[].
