People living in northern Cocle province, Panama, are proud to be independent. Hereditary leaders make decisions in consensus, a practice understood as continuous from pre-Columbian times. The term cholo, derogatory in some contexts, is valid here to discuss self-determination. Victoriano Lorenzo led the "War of a Thousand Days" (1901-1903) that is understood in northern Cocle as a fight for indigenous land rights. While state bureaucracies later labeled the region an "area of extreme poverty" and imposed programs seeking to eradicate "poverty," local oral history narratives focus on the interdependence of the natural environment and the human community. The indigenous political structure found liberation power through Catholic theology, and participated in a social movement that stopped a planned expansion of the Panama Canal. This book presents a new understanding of the people and their social structure, informed by extensive archival research and by oral history interviews the author conducted while living in northern Cocle for approximately four years.

About the Author:

Nina K. Muller-Schwarze is a cultural anthropologist and Senior Research Fellow at the Southern Food and Beverage Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Review:

Takes pains to set local patterns into regional, national, and even international perspective, interweaving theoretical controversies with local realities. Her major achievement is that she makes these people come alive and earn readers respect, despite locals dismissing them as the poor or uncivilized...recommended. --Choice

Book Description McFarland Co Inc, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The people living in northern Cocle province, Panama, are proud to be independent. Hereditary leaders make decisions in consensus, a practice understood as continuous from pre-Columbian times. The term cholo, derogatory in some contexts, is valid here to discuss self-determination. Church, state, and indigenous political structures disagree sharply on definitions of the cholo, people or their status (or the goals for their well-being). Victoriano Lorenzo led the War of a Thousand Days (1901-1903) that is understood in northern Cocle as a fight for indigenous land rights. While state bureaucracies later labelled the region an area of extreme poverty and imposed programs seeking to eradicate poverty, local oral history narratives focus on the interdependence of the natural environment and the human community. The indigenous political structure found liberation power through Catholic theology, and participated in a social movement that stopped a planned expansion of the Panama canal. This book presents a new understanding of the people and their social structure that differs sharply from outdated observations. Seller Inventory # AAN9780786460342
