Resumen

YELA DAVALOS, Diego Fernando. Cosmology and transformation in the perception of the kichwa-lorocachi of the ancestral people Kausak Sacha. Curaray river. Ecuadorian amazon. Universitas [online]. 2020, n.32, pp.193-210. ISSN 1390-8634.  https://doi.org/10.17163/uni.n32.2020.10.

This article is the result of a larger study that investigates elements of the Kichwa cosmological system. The theme has been explored since the 80s from the so called perspectivist ontological turn that combines theoretical models resulting from different ethnographic works with a common interest to propose alternatives to the traditional dualism between nature / culture. Based on an ethnographic methodology based mainly on the perceptions of local people, the article aims to show descriptively how certain cultural markers: shamanism and body building, local mythic and territorial perception are retracted. From the data collected, it is concluded that said retraction is due to the attractiveness of modernity and its technologies, mainly towards the new generations. On the other hand we have the pause in the generational transfer of traditional knowledge. This is inserted in a particular socio-economic dynamic in a territory located outside the urban centers of modern development.

Palabras clave : Cosmology; cultural transformation; ontology; territory; ethnopolitics; shamanism.
