Show Summary Details


This chapter proposes a design for a museum of Saramakas' history. It suggests having separate rooms for different eras, from the early eighteenth century to the twenty-first century. This museum would be dominated by the continuities of white oppression and by the vast imbalances of power and would include Samarakas' refusal to accept the whites' definition of the situation and their successful creation of a separate world of their own.

Keywords: Samarakas' history; museum; white people; oppression; imbalances of power

Chapter.  1550 words.  Illustrated.

Subjects: Anthropology of Religion
