Entre a Longue Durée e o Short Purée: Arqueologias Pós-Coloniais da história indígena na América do Norte colonial

Teoria Arqueológica, Escalas, Colonialismo


Arqueólogos que estudam culturas Indígenas no contexto do colonialismo Europeu estão frequentemente presos em um enigma de escala temporal. Como representar, traduzir e interpretar práticas e pessoas Indígenas de forma a não só respeitar as complexidades do mundo colonial e suas ações neste, mas também situar suas vidas no contexto de suas próprias histórias culturais únicas de curto e longo prazo? Capturar essa dualidade não tem sido fácil. Parte desse problema é que os arqueólogos não têm atendido completamente à chamada de Lightfoot (1995) a fim de conduzir verdadeiros estudos multiescala e diacrônicos sobre colonialismo e respostas Indígenas para as suas várias formas. Parte disso se relaciona às maneiras como conceitos arqueológicos, termos e métodos ainda não estão descolonizados e ainda não estão sintonizados às formas que pessoas, passado e presente se relacionam com suas próprias histórias.
