Subject: Indigenous repair practices

Indigenous repair practices

From: Ed FitzGerald <fitzed<-at->

Can anyone recommend a scholarly source for information on
"indigenous (or native) repair" practices and philosophies such as
those commonly seen on artifacts from certain African tribes (e.g.
the Dogon of Mali)? Perhaps someone can suggest another name for
ritual or traditional repair activity. A search for these terms in
anthropological literature databases was not fruitful.
