Between Resistance and Adaptation
Liverpool University Press

Far from embracing their fate at the hands of the Spanish Crown, Indians in the Chocó continued to mount a challenge to Spanish domination and Christian evangelisation, as well as to protect their ethnic interests, identity, and cohesion. To escape Spanish reprisals in the aftermath of the Citará rebellion, many Indians set up runaway communities in remote and inaccessible parts of the region long before they were discovered only in the 1710s and 1720s. They also turned to less overt forms of resistance to prevent the Spaniards from fully incorporating them into the society and economy of the frontier region. This chapter, which focuses on the resistance and adaptation of the peoples of Citará to counter Spanish colonisation between 1700 and 1750, begins by looking at the establishment of a foothold for Antioquia in the region of the Murri river by Don Joseph López de Carvajal. It then looks at Spain's failure to convert native peoples to Christianity.
