These are Supplementary Materials I and II (Supporting Information) for the research article “Kapit” at “Bahay” concepts of Filipino neighboring: A cultural revalidation," published in ETHOS by the American Anthropological Association through Wiley-Blackwell. Original Article: Fatalla, Jimbo M. 2023. “Kapit” at “Bahay” concepts of Filipino neighboring: A cultural revalidation." Ethos 51 (2): 149–165. https://doi.org/10.1111/etho.12383


Steps to reproduce

My research deconstructs by way of Virgilio Enriquez’s “cultural revalidation” the Filipino concept of neighbor and espouses an indigenous psychology of “kapitbahay,” using the pagtatanong-tanong (asking questions), pakikipagkuwentuhan (informal conversation), and pagdalaw-dalaw (repeated visits) methods.
