About this product
- Description...a good book ...clearly written ...that raises a number of important general issues relevant to the contemporary political, cultural and ecomic struggles of indigeus peoples of the Amazon and elsewhere. - Terence Turner, Cornell University Like many other indigeus groups, the Huaorani of eastern Ecuador are facing many challenges as they attempt to confront the globalization of capitalism in the 21st century. In 1991, they formed a political organization as a direct response to the growing threat to Huaorani territory posed by oil exploitation, colonization, and other pressures. The author explores the structures and practices of the organization, as well as the contradictions created by the imposition of an alien and hierarchical organizational form on a traditionally egalitarian society. This study has broad implications for those who work toward cultural survival or try to save the rainforest. A native of Pennsylvania, Lawrence Ziegler-Otero teaches in the Department of Anthropology at SUNY Plattsburgh. After a first career as a trade union organizer in the United States, he became an anthroplogist in order to study political, labor and indigeus organizations. He has also lived and worked in Ecuador and Puerto Rico.
