This preface describes the process of writing and developing this ethnography about Sikaiana. It explains why I am publishing in this format. It also contextualized this ethnography in terms of how anthropology has changed over the past 40 years and also a brief discussion of how the Sikaiana people have changed since my research from 1980-1993.
