๐Ÿ“™ Comparative Arawakan Histories: Rethinking Language Family and Culture Area in Amazonia by Jonathan D. Hill, Fernando Santos-Granero โ€” pdf free


Before they were largely decimated and dispersed by the effects of European colonization, Arawak-speaking peoples were the most widespread language family in Latin America and the Caribbean, and they were the first people Columbus encountered in the Americas. "Comparative Arawakan Histories", in paperback for the first time, examines social structures, political hierarchies, rituals, religious movements, gender relations, and linguistic variations through historical perspectives to document sociocultural diversity across the diffused Arawakan diaspora.
