How does a culture in which writing is not a prominent feature create historical tradition? Researcher Joanne Rappaport answers the question by tracing the past three centuries of intellectual history of the Nasa--a community in the Colombian Andes. Originally published in 1990 but of continuing interest to all scholars of Latin America. 21 illustrations.
