Etnicidades en la costa ecuatoriana

by Silvia G. Alvarez

The Ecuadorian coast is frequently conceived in the social imaginary as a space devoid of ethnicity. Alvarez shows this is a misconception. The volume presents results of her research related to the historic transformations in relation to land tenure, the redefinition of ethnic spaces, the perceptions of the "cholo" identity, the control of resources, as well as the agricultural technologies that help the coastal peoples vindicate their Huancavilca ethnicity. In Spanish.
