Many  of  the  researchers  who  have  visited  ‘shared  signing  communities’ (Kisch  2008)  are  hearing  linguists  interested  in  these  communities’  sign languages. A  hearing  anthropologist  (Kisch  2004,  2007,  2008)  has  done extensive research amongst the Bedouin, and Marsaja (2008) provides us with  sociocultural  information  about  Bengkala.  Only  recently  have  deaf  the Bedouin, and in Chican (Mexico), Alipur (India), and Bengkala (Bali). However, deaf-led anthropological research has been absent in such communities until my recent entry into Adamorobe.
