Imagery & creativity : ethnoaesthetics and art worlds in the Americas( Book )

7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From pottery to story to carnivals, various forms of artistic expression from the Americas can be shown to reflect universal human imagery and creativity. In this collection, contributors from a variety of disciplines utilize an ethnoaesthetic perspective to place art forms within their cultural and social milieus, and address the problem of understanding culturally patterned creative expressions caught up in organized art worlds."--BOOK JACKET. "The book presents an array of contemporary and ancient arts of North, Central, and South America and the Caribbean, ranging from the cultural heritage of the Central Andes and Mesoamerica to contemporary peoples who share a legacy of colonial domination - such as Native American artists of Canada and the American Southwest, the Saramaka Maroons of Suriname, Trinidadian Carnival designers, and the Canelos Quichua of Amazonian Ecuador. Approaches used by the authors include a general survey of the arts of a region, an intensive study of the aesthetic genres and styles of a culture, an examination of the historical and ethnohistorical features of artistic and cultural hegemony, and a reconstruction of life histories in cultural context."--BOOK JACKET. "Throughout the book, the authors seek to combine respect for the local-level creation and production of art, narrative, and performance with an understanding of macro-level institutional manifestations of art-world domination and hegemony. Together, they show that these diverse art forms reflect universal human imagery and creativity that persist through time and communicate across cultural barriers."--BOOK JACKET
Millennial Ecuador : critical essays on cultural transformations and social dynamics by Norman E Whitten( Book )

14 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Millennial Ecuador is a superb collection of essays by leading anthropoligists, historians, and indigenous intellectuals that provides a multifaceted, critical view of the social and cultural pratices 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 gl

Ecuadorian ethnocide and indigenous ethnogenesis : Amazonian resurgence amidst Andean colonialism by Norman E Whitten( Book )

9 editions published in 1976 in English and Danish and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Just east of the Andes live two of the largest concentrations of tropical forest Indians in central Ecuador. Both speak Quichua which is a language long associated with Incaic expansion in the highlands and well known as a lower-class, rural, "Indian" means of communication in contemporary highland Ecuador. These Jungle Quichua live near the towns of Puyo and Tena, each the capital of a province. All native Quichua speakers refer to themselves as Runa. About 10,000 people participate in the Canelos Quichua culture, and about 20,000 more lowland Ecuadorian native peoples speak mutually intelligible dialects. Historically the Canelos Quichua are characterized by nearly 400 years of sporadic relationships with Catholic missions and missionaries. Since 1947, the Puyo Runa have lived on an Indigenous commune encompassing 17,000 hectares of some of the most rugged jungle territory in eastern Ecuador. Focusing on the Canelos Quichua who in their total situation vis-a-vis national culture and national policies, may be taken as a microcosm of cultural continuity-cultural change, and ethnogenetic-ethnocidal dynamics in Amazonian-Andean settings, this paper illustrates the dual complementaries of cultural continuity and cultural change and of ethnocide and ethnogenesis. Discussed are the cultural markers of the Canelos Quichua, their historical background, national categories, recent Puyo Runa history, national culture and native rights, internal colonialism, ethnocide, and racism.

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lavishly illustrated with over 100 photos, the second edition of From Myth to Creation offers a dramatic insider's view of the cognitive and symbolic worlds of indigenous potters and woodworkers in a region undergoing radical change. By placing Canelos Quichua art in social and cultural context, the text invites readers to better understand and appreciate the art, aesthetics, and the historical and contemporary consciousness of indigenous Americans. This new edition includes a new foreword and chapter"--
