Sorcery And Spirit Owners On The Mosquito Coast, Nicaragua

This presentation explores the relationship between religion and economics in Miskitu-speaking villages in eastern Nicaragua. I show how, in these communities, the penetration of capitalist relations of production and exchange is resulting in greater economic inequality and growing concerns with sorcery and other forms of supernatural violence.
