Summary "This book examines how pigs are entangled in the constitution of relations between humans and between humans and spirits among the Ifugao of Northern Luzon in the Philippines. The book applies concepts like relational personhood, assemblages, and performativity to argue that persons emerge from relational practices of exchange and sacrifice. It also argues that pigs are constitutively involved in these practices"-- Provided by publisher.
