Therapeutic as well as reformist efforts verify the sad truth that in any system based on suppression, exclusion, and exploitation, the suppressed, excluded and exploited unconsciously accept the evil image they are made to represent by those who are dominant’ (Erikson 1974: 59).

Primitivity is both exotic and familiar to moderns, an opposition that explains us (Torgovnick 1990: 8, 11, 246).
