Abstract:
This thesis is an ethnography of Maniq people living in Southern Thailand. Maniq people are the northernmost group of forest peoples who have traditionally lived throughout the Malay peninsula and Kra Isthmus. The thesis is concerned with the ways in which Maniq people articulate personhood and identity through a framework of pragmatism and social action. To be Maniq, in this way, means to be a "forest person", indicating not just a form of human ecology or subsistence, but a mode of social and political subjectivity which is actively cultivated and performed over a lifetime.
