dc.description.abstractenFrom the highlands of the Andes to the lowlands of the Amazon basin, from subsistence farmers to hunter-gatherer groups, indigenous populations are changing their lifestyle so rapidly, and sometimes so dramatically, that it is difficult to follow the pace of the transformation. In this work, which is based on my research among the Toba and Wichí of Argentina and among the Tz'utujil Maya of Guatemala, I attempt to elaborate on the kaleidoscopic experience of indigenous people in transition, particularly with respect to the impact of transitions on women's health. By favoring a dialectic model that looks simultaneously at the local and the global, the quantitative and the qualitative, the insider's (or emic) views and the external (or etic) interpretations, and their interaction among all, I hope to draw a framework within which we can explore questions that are relevant to us as researchers and to the communities with which we work.en_US
