Since the 1980s, Ecuador has seen five indigenous uprisings, the emergence of the powerful Pachakutik political movement and the strengthening of the Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of Ecuador and the Associations of Black Ecuadorians, all of which have contributed substantially to a new constitution proclaiming the country to be mulitethnic and multicultural. Furthermore, January 2003 saw the inauguration of a new populist president, who immediately appointed two indigenous persons to his cabinet. In this volume, 11 critical essays, plus a lengthy introduction and epilogue explore the multicultural forces that have allowed Ecuador's indigenous peoples to have such dramatic effects on the nation's political structure. systems of local-level aesthetics, ritual and cosmology and the national polical-economic transformations that have shaped this paradoxical, globalizing nation. In their descriptions and analyses, they bring together interpretive anthropological, sociological and historical scholarshop to consider these transcultural and intercultural phenomena. throughout the Americas, these essays should appeal to Latin Americanists, social scientists and humanists of the Andes and Amazonia, and, in particular, anthropologists as well as undergraduates and graduate students.

About the Author:

Norman E. Whitten is professor of anthropology and Latin American studies, director of the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, curator of the Spurlock Museum, affiliate of Afro-American studies, and Senior University Scholar at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Author and editor of many books and essays, he has been working in Ecuador since 1961.

Review:

"Millennial Ecuador is a superb collection of essays by leading anthropologists, historians, and indigenous intellectuals that provides a multifaceted, critical view of the social and cultural practices of Andean, Amazonian, and Afro-Ecuadorian peoples engaged in mounting political struggles. Focusing on the clash between structural and contra-structural power, on empowerment processes of traditionally disenfranchised populations, and on multiple and competing, representations of current confrontations, the book constitutes an outstanding analysis of the contradictions of modern and millennial globality through detailed investigation of local cases."
