American Anthropology in Micronesia

&nbsp.The ethical consideration in this paper is considering Micronesia as a culture and studying the group keeping in mind the subgroups and the differences between them. The field study in the research involves questions like how do the constituents of the group feel about their identity and exchange of cultures. The questions about their expression of their identity and effort to have that identity are also important. The important part of the study is to infer the answers that participants cannot answer directly. Hence, the researcher should focus on sociocultural anthropology and several offshoots of the discipline as stated by Kiste Robert (2008) in ‘American Anthropology in Micronesia: An Assessment’.

The inference regarding culture, language and identity are possible with the study of prehistory and anthropological linguistics and physical anthropology. The researchers should take into consideration the roles played by applied anthropology within the domain of socio-cultural anthropology and archaeology on the evolution of the group with the diversities contained by its subgroups. The anthropological linguistical research is also necessary for determining the exchange and physical anthropology is necessary for major inputs in war-related applied projects and other types of evolution. The cultural relativism as a basic tenet of discipline can explain how the expression of identities changes in course of time and between various subgroups in an affinity group.&nbsp.&nbsp.
