They treat culture as a text that can only be understood from the inside of the culture, in its own terms, an approach interpretivists refer to as “experience near” anthropology, in other words, learning about a culture through the perspectives of the study population as possible.

Little c, as mentioned above, is the particulars of any given culture group, for instance, the marriage or subsistence pattern of a group of people.

He pursued the idea further (though not in the same terms) in later publications, especially 1969, and it was taken up by Spooner, who argued on the one hand the vitality of tribal social forms and on the other the dependence and porosity of tribal society to concepts and values from the larger society (1973, 1984) Cooperation And Competition Among Primitive Peoples - First Edition.. It is true that history provides some of the cultural diversity with which theoretical models of behavior may be tested, but history lacks the detailed data, especially of intimate and informal events, that is not recorded in historic documents Russia in North America: Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Russian America, Sitka, Alaska August 19-22, 1987 (Alaska History).
