Urarina Society, Cosmology, and History in Peruvian Amazonia

University Press of Florida

This chapter discusses how Urarina society has been shaped by long-term entanglement with missionaries, colonial administrators, and traders, as well as with agents of the “singular” Peruvian nation to which the state gave birth. Following centuries of colonial rule, a pattern of skewed development emerged in Peruvian Amazonia that effectively blocked indigenous people like the Urarina from full participation in the Peruvian nation-state.

Keywords:   Urarina society, Peruvian nation, colonial rule, Peruvian Amazonia, indigenous people, development
