Short

This volume consists of papers from the 1992 Dumbarton Oaks conference marking the quincentennial of Columbus’s landing in the Americas. By directing their attention toward the indigenous response to the Spanish intrusion, to the cultural adjustments and negotiations it required, the editors and authors of this volume hope that a better understanding can be achieved of the cultural features that made native societies so resilient.
