9780822345732: Strange Enemies: Indigenous Agency and Scenes of Encounters in Amazonia (The Cultures and Practice of Violence)

In 1956, in the Brazilian state of Rondônia, a group of Wari’ Indians had their first peaceful contact with whites: Protestant missionaries and officers from the national Indian Protection Service. On returning to their villages, the Wari’ announced, “We touched their bodies!” Meanwhile the whites reported to their own people that “the region’s most warlike tribe has entered the pacification phase!” Initially published in Brazil, Strange Enemies is an ethnographic narrative of the first encounters between these peoples with radically different worldviews.

During the 1940s and 1950s, white rubber tappers invading the Wari’ lands raided the native villages, shooting and killing their victims as they slept. These massacres prompted the Wari’ to initiate a period of intense retaliatory warfare. The national government and religious organizations subsequently intervened, seeking to “pacify” the Indians. Aparecida Vilaça was able to interview both Wari’ and non-Wari’ participants in these encounters, and here she shares their firsthand narratives of the dramatic events. Taking the Wari’ perspective as its starting point, Strange Enemies combines a detailed examination of these cross-cultural encounters with analyses of classic ethnological themes such as kinship, shamanism, cannibalism, warfare, and mythology.

From the Back Cover:

"This intimate portrait of a remarkable people who insist on encountering modernity on their own terms challenges us to think beyond outmoded notions about acculturation and loss of tradition. Deftly weaving the insights of Amazonian perspectivism with history, myth, and personal experience, Aparecida Vilaca shows how Wari' choices to live with whites and adopt many of their ways are part of the logic of being indigenous. Empowerment derives from seeing the world through the eyes of others. "Strange Enemies" invites us to see the world through Wari' eyes. The view is fascinating."--Beth A. Conklin, author of "Consuming Grief: Compassionate Cannibalism in an Amazonian Society"

About the Author:

Aparecida Vilaça is Associate Professor of Social Anthropology in the Graduate Program in Social Anthropology of the Museu Nacional, Universidade Federal de Rio de Janeiro. She is a co-editor of Native Christians: Modes and Effects of Christianity in the Americas.

Descrizione libro Duke University Press. Paperback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, Strange Enemies: Indigenous Agency and Scenes of Encounters in Amazonia, Aparecida Vilaca, David Rodgers, In 1956, in the Brazilian state of Rondonia, near the border with Bolivia, a group of Wari' Indians experienced their first peaceful contact with whites: Protestant missionaries and agents from the national government's Indian Protection Service. On returning to their villages, the Wari' announced, 'We touched their bodies!' The whites reported to their people that 'The region's most warlike tribe has entered the pacification phase!' First published in Brazil, "Strange Enemies" is a vivid ethnography describing the first encounters between two groups with radically different worldviews. Aparecida Vilaca focuses on the process of pacification conducted by Brazilian government agents, U.S. Protestant missionaries, and representatives of the Catholic Church between 1956 and 1969. During the 1940s and 1950s, white rubber-tappers interested in Wari' lands raided their villages, shooting and killing sleeping victims. Those massacres prompted the Wari' to initiate a period of intense retaliatory warfare. The national government and religious organizations stepped in, seeking to pacify the Indians. Vilaca was able to interview both Wari' and non-Wari' people who participated in these events. She reproduces many Wari' testimonies in "Strange Enemies". Drawing on those interviews and an analysis of tribal myths, Vilaca describes Wari' conceptions of self and other. The Wari' categorize others as strangers and enemies. White people are enemies. In the past, enemies could be killed in acts of warfare. In the present day, violent encounters are rare and life in close proximity with enemies is common. Vilaca provides a subtle analysis of what it means for the Wari' to live with enemies when warfare is no longer an option. With "Strange Enemies", she makes a major contribution to the ethnographic record on Amazonia and the understanding of the present-day situation of indigenous people.
