Mark Jamieson will analyse a set of myths from three Amerindian groups, the Miskitu of Nicaragua, the Kuna of Panama and the Tatuyo of Colombia. In their different ways, the stories address what many in Lowland South and Central America consider to be the most fundamental existential issue, the need to domesticate through marriage those imagined and represented as dangerous 'others'.
