The purpose of this report is to assess what happens to the so-called animism, as soon as Amerindians find themselves outside of their original environment. Specifically, it focuses on the situation lived by a group of Amerindian people displaced from the Amazon and now settled in Bogotá.

Scholars relevant in this field, including Dr. Gow, Dr. Rival, Dr. Ingold, Dr. Virtanen, Dr. Hugh-Jones and Dr. Arhem have been contacted and a few have provided some insight into the matter.


The report is expected to be published in January.
