About this product
- DescriptionDuring Spanish colonization of the Greater Antilles, the islands' natives were forced into labor under the encomienda system. The indigeus people became Indios, their language, appearance, and identity transformed by the domination imposed by a foreign model that Christianized and civilized them. Yet El Chorro de Maita retained many of its indigeus characteristics. In this volume-one of the first in English to examine and document an archaeological site in Cuba-Roberto Valcarcel Rojas analyzes the construction of colonial authority and the various attitudes and responses of natives and other ethnic groups. His pioneering study reveals the process of transculturation in which new individuals emerged-Indians, mestizos, criollos-and helps construct the vital link between the pre-Columbian world and the development of an integrated and new history.
- Author BiographyRoberto Valcarcel Rojas is a researcher for the Cuban Ministry of Science's Department of Central-Eastern Archaeology and a postdoctoral researcher at Leiden University, Netherlands.
