Millennial Ecuador : critical essays on cultural transformations and social dynamics by Norman E Whitten( )

18 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2,025 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 globality of local cases.--Fernando Santos-Granero, author of The Power of Love: The Moral Use of Knowledge amongst the Amuesha of Central Peru

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

7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 453 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."--Jacket

Puyo runa : imagery and power in modern Amazonia by Norman E Whitten( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Andean nation of Ecuador derives much of its revenue from petroleum that is extracted from its vast Upper Amazonian rain forest, which is home to ten indigenous nationalities. Norman E. Whitten Jr. and Dorothea Scott Whitten have lived among and studied one such people, the Canelos Quichua, for nearly forty years. In Puyo Runa, they present a trenchant ethnography of history, ecology, imagery, and cosmology to focus on shamans, ceramic artists, myth, ritual, and political engagements. Canelos Quichua are active participants in national politics, including large-scale movements for social justice for Andean and Amazonian people. Puyo Runa offers readers exceptional insight into this cultural world, revealing its intricacies and embedded humanisms
