  • Anclas para Sueños Silvestres. Una Conversación con Eduardo Kohn

    • Authors: Mónica Cuéllar Gempeler et al.
      Abstract: Following the Spanish publication of the book How Forests Think. Toward an Anthropology Beyond the Human, Eduardo Kohn (Associate Professor of Anthropology at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and Affiliated Researcher at FLACSO in Ecuador) reflects on the origins and the trajectory of his research in the Ecuadorian Amazon. The conversation dwells on questions of theory and method, on key concepts of this influential work (such as absence, hierarchy, and "emergence"), and, finally, on the new paths that have appeared since the initial publication of this book in 2013. The narrative that takes place in the interview will be helpful for those approaching How Forests Think for the first or umpteenth time, leading us to appreciate the many kinds of stories unfolding between the lines of this fascinating work.A propósito de la publicación en español del libro Cómo piensan los bosques. Hacia una antropología más allá de lo humano (2021), Eduardo Kohn (profesor de antropología de la Universidad de McGill en Montreal, Canadá, e investigador afiliado en la FLACSO de Ecuador) reflexiona sobre los antecedentes y la trayectoria de su investigación en la Amazonía ecuatoriana. La conversación se detiene en cuestiones de teoría y método, en conceptos claves de este influyente trabajo (como la ausencia, la jerarquía y la emergencia) y, finalmente, en los nuevos caminos que han surgido a partir de la publicación inicial de este libro en 2013. Se trata de un recorrido conversado que servirá de apoyo para quienes se aproximen a Cómo piensan los bosques por primera o enésima vez, y que nos lleva a apreciar los muchos tipos de historias que se desenvuelven entre las líneas de esta fascinante obra.

  • Writing and Drawing: Knowledge of “Traditional Indigenous

    • Authors: Maria Christina Barra
      Abstract: This paper aims to discuss the construction of the “traditional indigenous midwife” category in the context of public health policies on pregnancy, labor and childbirth care in Roraima, Brazil. Based on statements given by indigenous women and men in two sets of situations - the training courses offered by the Ministry of Health and in the Midwives, Praying men and Shamans Meetings held in Região das Serras, Raposa Serra do Sol Indigenous Land, Brazil - this work seeks to consider how the sensible knowing of these men and women who call themselves midwives is transformed into the category of “traditional indigenous knowledge”. In addition, I will examine the writing and drawing records produced by midwives, pointing to the ways in which traditional indigenous knowledge transforms itself and takes new shapes in relation to the conceptual logic of scientific knowledge embedded in public health policies.

  • Community Health Workers in Central-Southern Amazonia: An Ethnographic
           Account of the Munduruku People of Kwatá Laranjal Indigenous Land

    • Authors: Daniel Scopel et al.
      Abstract: We describe the range of different positions assumed by Community Health Workers (CHW) employed to work among the Mundurucu in order to analyze their emergence as new actors in the social field of indigenous health and the implications of CHW participation for the relatively new national policy of “differentiated attention.” Based on ethnographic research conducted between 2008 and 2017 among the Mundurucu of the Kwatá-Laranjal Indigenous Territory situated in the Brazilian state of Amazonas, our analysis includes the position of Indigenous Health Agent (AIS), Indigenous Sanitation Agent (AISAN) and Indigenous Microscope Agent (AIM). We describe the different roles assumed by the Munduruku CHWs and demonstrate that, in the context of medical plurality, the performance of CHWs in Multidisciplinary Indigenous Health Teams (EMSI) surpasses their instrumental role in biomedical services and extends to the occupation of political spaces.

  • Health Agents on The Move: Yanomami Agency and The Struggle For Wellbeing

    • Authors: Alejandro Reig
      Abstract: This paper examines the sanitary and sociopolitical impact of the work of a Yanomami Health Agent in the Upper Ocamo area of the Venezuelan Amazonas State, and its relationship with the national health system, and argues that these build up into an interface of transformations. This is an interactional milieu composed by a dynamic mesh of incorporations and transformations working at different scales and in different directions: the State sanitary device incorporating a hinterland cluster of villages, a village at the center of this cluster incorporating the resources of the outside world, a young adult incorporating the potencies of outsiders and transforming into one of them, and other villagers entering the field of transformations.

  • Gendered Geographies of Care: Women as Health Workers in an Indigenous
           Health Project in the Peruvian Amazon

    • Authors: Daniela Peluso
      Abstract: This article examines how women as primary gatekeepers for well being became involved as health promoters in a local indigenous health care project in the Amazonian region of Madre de Dios, Peru. Here, I provide a case study of the processes and transitions that the project underwent from its inception to its eventual inclusion of indigenous women health promoters into its programs among indigenous communities from the mid 1980’s through the early 1990’s, at a time when western primary health care was even less accessible then it is today. The article begins with an overview of Madre de Dios and a general discussion of the links between health and gender. It then calls attention to women’s invisibility in daily primary healthcare and examines how and why women were initially neglected in health care delivery strategies while examining the progression and extent of their involvement, their role in health resource management, and the difficulties they faced as leaders vis-à-vis broader political structures such as the native federation and local government. Overall, the project succeeded in broadening the definition of health to include ideas of well-being, ‘living well’ and conservation as a set of relationships with the environment and its care - areas in which women undeniably hold key positions. In examining geographical natural resource maps by charting ideological and gender-based practices upon it, this article discusses a gender balanced approach to processes legitimizing indigenous healthcare practices. This research suggests that the overlooking of women’s roles in community health is embedded in local and global gendered politics of health care that tend to ignore that care practices are embedded in daily social relations. Furthermore, the problems that the omission of women as health promoters raises offers a general critique of the indigenous health agent approach to healthcare in Amazonia.
