  • Ticuna Ceramics Amidst the Expansion of Illicit Coca: Rendering New

    • Authors: Manuel Martín Brañas et al.
      Abstract: In Ticuna communities across Amazonia, ceramics are useful objects employed for cooking and storage. Their practical importance, however, does not describe the extent of their significance. In the following article, we consider Ticuna ceramics and ceramic-making practices as a means of studying the changes set in motion by the transformation of Ticuna ancestral lands in Peru’s lowland Amazonian region into zones of illicit coca cultivation. Drawing on mixed-methods ethnographic research, including participant observation, interviews, and a participatory film project focused on ceramic production, we evaluate contemporary practices of ceramic-making within three Peruvian Ticuna communities in the context of these transformations, and the national government’s subsequent responses to the coca situation. Ceramics are a starting point to explore a complex web of relations as Ticuna communities intersect with both drug-trafficking operations and agents of the Peruvian state.

  • Camaraderie, mentorship, and manhood: Contemporary Indigenous identities
           among the A’uwẽ (Xavante) of Central Brazil

    • Authors: James R. Welch
      Abstract: Rites of passage and associated social processes and configurations can foster a sense of shared purpose, fraternity, and dedication to community through common experiences of group trials and commitment. A’uwẽ (Xavante) age organization entails the social production of manhood through a privileged form of male camaraderie constructed through age sets and mentorship, rooted in the shared experience of rites of passage and coresidence in the pre-initiate boys’ house. This process is central to how A’uwẽ men understand themselves, their social relations with certain delineated segments of society, and their ethnic identity. It is a basic social configuration contributing to the maintenance of A’uwẽ social and ethnic belonging in contemporary times. Ethnography of lowland South America could benefit from expanding its reach to consider the contributions of age organization and ritualized camaraderie to social and ethnic identity because they comprise an additional dimension of social identity that does not fit neatly into previously emphasized orders of social relations for this geographical region.

  • Movements in C minor: Vocal Soundscapes in Eastern Amazonia (Araweté)

    • Authors: Guilherme Orlandini Heurich
      Abstract: This article examines the capture of forest spirits through music in the Anĩ pihi speech-songs of the Araweté, a small Amerindian society in Eastern Amazonia, Brazil. The Anĩ pihi are unique in their combination of spoken and sung forms, in which spirits and divinities are voiced by a ritual specialist. I explore how particular sounds index the presence of different kinds of others (gods and spirits), and how these sounds are, in turn, related to the use of reported speech – in other words, how others talk about other others in sung form. As such, the Anĩ pihi are a useful context in which to discuss recent approaches in the anthropology of Lowland South America such as “perspectivism” (Viveiros de Castro 1998; Lima 1999) and “animism” (Descola 2014), especially where these approaches have changed the way in which we think about language and music (Cesarino 2011; Déléage 2009; Kohn 2013). This article argues that we should combine linguistic and musicological approaches in order to fully understand the “perspectival soundscape” of Amerindian songs, and that such a combined musical-linguistic approach could give us a better understanding of the ways in which humans and non-humans act as people in Amazonia.

  • 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.
