Review of the literature on African-American dance in the Caribbean. The author focuses on 3 problems. The first is the construction of canons in dance anthropology. The second has to do with the ways in which these canons have dealt with dance in the Caribbean in particular. Finally, the author examines issues 'surrounding the ways anthropology creates its objects of study'.
