Abstract

Spanish Abstract: Partiendo de un trabajo de campo etnográfico dedicado a la realidad de la comunidad afro-ecuatoriana La Chiquita, especialmente respecto a su lucha por el territorio ancestral a que tienen derecho, frente a la desterritorialización promovida por el avance del monocultivo de palma aceitera, nos proponemos: I) comprender la dimensión de la colonialidad del Estado al interior de este conflicto, incluyendo el ethos disciplinar e Institucional que interpreta la negritud; y II) identificar y analizar las diversas formas de resistencia de esta comunidad en respuesta a esa estructura sociopolítica vertical, incorporando al análisis las narrativas de su contexto desde una crítica centrada en la epistemología y en la socio-antropología jurídica.

English Abstract: Departing from an ethnographic fieldwork dedicated to the reality of the afro-ecuadorian community of La Chiquita, in particular on its struggle concerning the integrity of the ancestral territory in response of a growing dispossession process orchestrated by oil palm monocultures in Ecuador, we propose: (I) an overview to comprehend the coloniality of the State within this conflict, including the disciplinary and Institutional ethos in interpreting blackness; and (II) identify and analyze the various forms of resistance of this community in response to such vertical sociopolitical structure, exposing their narratives in such a context from a criticism focused on epistemology and the sociology of law.
