How |Natives| Think
By:Marshall Sahlins
Published on 1996-10-01 by University of Chicago Press

Curiously then, as Sahlins shows, Obeyesekere turns eighteenth-century Hawaiians into modern Europeans, living up to the highest Western standards of |practical rationality.| By contrast, Western scholars are turned into classic, custom-bound |natives,| endlessly repeating their ancestral traditions of the white man's superiority by insisting Cook was taken for a Hawaiian god. But this inverted ethnocentrism can only be supported, as Sahlins demonstrates, by wholesale fabrications of Hawaiian ethnography and history - not to mention Obeyesekere's sustained misrepresentations of Sahlins's own work. And in the end, although he claims to be speaking on behalf of |natives,| Obeyesekere, by substituting a homemade |rationality| for Hawaiian culture, systematically eliminates the voices of Hawaiian people from their own history
