(p.294) Conclusion
Negotiated Settlements

Steven A. Wernke

University Press of Florida

The concluding chapter reviews the main contours of argumentation in the book, highlighting how the grounded, emplaced perspective on the local experience of colonial rule taken throughout can produce a novel outlook on colonial rule; an outlook in which lines of power between dominant and subordinate—and the things that local social actors did—were not so clearly delimited in reactive, oppositional ways. It also discusses the broader implications for understanding of community, landscape, and colonialism. It shows how “community” was not just an unselfconscious by-product of habituated interaction, but a primary interface in the politics of articulation between colonial projects (Inkaic and Spanish) and local peoples. Similarly, “landscape” was not just the setting for these negotiations it was an emergent property of them, and in this sense constituted another primary interface in that politics of articulation. Community and landscape in this sense constitute the “resistance of culture” in colonial encounters and thus a large measure of how new kinds of colonial societies were improvised in situ.
