Beyond Black and Red: African-Native Relations in Colonial Latin America (Dialogos)

Beyond Black and Red: African-Native Relations in Colonial Latin America (Dialogos) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beyond Black and Red is the first book to deal primarily and specifically with relations between Africans and native peoples in colonial Latin America. Matthew Restall has collected nine essays that represent contributions to the larger fields of colonial Latin American history, African diaspora studies, and ethnohistory. Among the subjects addressed are marriage and miscegenation, identity and nomenclature, cultural exchanges, labor, and cooperation in resisting colonialism versus collaboration.

The authors examine core areas such as Mesoamerica, the Andes, and Brazil, and peripheral ones such as Florida, Colombia, and the Orinoco basin. The contributors find that relations between black and native peoples were sometimes harmonious, sometimes hostile, depending on local dynamics and individual agendas. Native and black soldiers fought sometimes as comrades, sometimes as adversaries, and couples in mixed marriages might identify as Indian or as black depending on where the advantage lay in a given society.

Book News Annotation:

For years, historians tended to portray relationships between enslaved Africans and indigenous peoples in Latin America as one of unremitting hostility. This collection of nine papers complicates that understanding by focusing on issues of cultural misunderstanding, inter-group collaboration, and shifting group identities, as well as incidents of conflict. Addressing such issues as marriage and miscegenation, identity and nomenclature, cultural exchange, labor, and cooperative resistance versus collaboration in response to Spanish colonialism. Specific topics include meanings of African and native military service in the colonies, cooperation and confrontation in colonial Brazil, conflict and cohabitation between Afro-Mexicans and Nahuas, Africans and natives in the mines of Spanish America, Black-Maya relations in colonial Guatemala and the Yucatan, and ethnic transgression and hybridity in Northeastern South America and the Caribbean.
