About this book

For almost four centuries, the Chiripa (Guarani) people of eastern Paraguay have maintained themselves as a distinct society despite continual and intense relations with the Paraguayan society and the international community. Unlike Latin American indigenous societies that have been forced to clear land for commercial agriculture, the Chiripa continue to harvest and sell forest products without destroying the forests. This work explores their ethnic autonomy.
