Summary

For over two decades, Picchi has documented how the Bakairí Indians have addressed and endured change. Her longitudinal perspective reveals how the Bakairí are responding to what is happening around them and charting a course in the new century. Written in an accessible, conversational style, without avoiding complex issues, this work represents one of the first ethnographies on South American Indians to espouse political ecology explicitly as a theoretical orientation. As such, it details how a people have actively developed options for presenting their culture to outsiders in the age of ecotourism and multiculturalism, while weaving together an eclectic production system in their reservation.
