Nonmarket cooperation in the indigenous food economy of taimyr, arctic russia: Evidence for control and benefit

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (4):571-571 (2004)

Empirical data on food sharing in native Dolgan, Nganasan, and Nenets communities in Siberia provide evidence for hunter control over big game and fish, as well as likely benefits of inter-household sharing. Most food sharing occurs with kin and, thus, kin-selection-based nepotism cannot be ruled out. Reciprocal interhousehold sharing at meals occurs less often. Social context is discussed.
