The Cultural Change of ‘Organisation’

  • Gwen Burnyeat
Chapter
Part of the Studies of the Americas book series (STAM)

Abstract

This chapter explores the cultural shift from a community that was ‘neutral’ in pragmatic, short-term protection terms, to a longer-term organisational process. It describes their forced displacement after their declaration of neutrality, the new conditions which led to self-organisation, explores the principles and regulations they agreed on for this new phase, and emphasises the role of cacao in this cultural change, especially the formation of the community work ethic and working groups.
