Abstract:Se analizan las tácticas de resistencia utilizadas por dos grupos igualitarios de Etiopia, los Mao y los Gumuz, para hacer frente a las presiones de las sociedades dominantes. En concreto, se estudian los mecanismos materiales de resistencia desde un punto de vista etnoarqueológico (el uso del espacio, la producción y consumo de cerámica y la caza).
In this chapter, the tactics of resistance are examined that are deployed by two egalitarian societies of the Ethiopian borderlands, the Mao and the Gumuz, to cope with the pressures of dominant societies. More specifically, the material mechanisms of resistance are studied from an ethnoarchaeological point of view, such as the use of space, the production and consumption of pottery and hunting.
