Segunda parte: identidades, etnicidades y prácticas. Capítulo 2: Tropes, oxymoron, and discursive construction of ethnicity: the case of muisca people in Colombia and its ethnopolitics of memory
Gómez-Montañez, Pablo F.
I want to begin this chapter with an experience that I had some weeks ago. I went with my wife, my daughter, and a couple of friends to the “Swift Horse Woman Native American Festival” in Mt. Aetna, Pennsylvania. The first feature I could note was that the dancers and singers did not belong to a specific native-American ethnic group. A story teller conducted the event, and when he announced a new performance, a cross-cultural group of women and men started different dances, while the singers, a group formed by men with long hair –some ones blond and with goatees– played their drums and yelled long and high pitch sounds. Some women dancers had native-American phenotype, while others could be confused with descendants of the Amish –of course without their typical clothes.
