Ambivalence of colonial representations: Indigenous leaders and Zambos of the Mosquito Coast at the end of the eighteenth century
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Sociology.
2007 (English)In: Revista de Indias, ISSN 0034-8341, E-ISSN 1988-3188, Vol. 67, no 241, 673-694 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In this article it is considered that the Anglicisation of the Miskitu Zambo and Indian leaders is one of the so many expressions that assume the ambivalence that governs the colonial relations. The main argument that guides this analysis is the Miskitu assimilation of English customs constitutes a strategy that tends to guarantee the social ascent of the group and not an expression of the control exerted by the Englishmen.
