About this product
- DescriptionFrom AD 1550 to 1850, the Araucanian polity in southern Chile was a center of political resistance to the intruding Spanish empire. In this book, Tom D. Dillehay examines the resistance strategies of the Araucanians and how they used mound building and other sacred monuments to reorganize their political and culture life in order to unite against the Spanish. Drawing on anthropological research conducted over three decades, Dillehay focuses on the development of leadership, shamanism, ritual, and power relations. His study combines developments in social theory with the archaeological, ethgraphic, and historical records. Both theoretically and empirically informed, this book is a fascinating account of the only indigeus ethnic group to successfully resist outsiders for more than three centuries and to flourish under these conditions.
