DescriptionThe photographs in this collection are the result of research on adaptation to the physical and political environment of the indigenous Cañarí of Juncal, Ecuador, as well as their concept of the world. Anthropologists Niels Fock and Eva Krener did this research from September 1973 to August 1974, and from August 1977 to January 1978. Their work was made possible with the financial support of the Government Council of Humanist Studies and the University of Copenhagen. A representative sample of the material culture of the indigenous Cañarís, such as traditional costumes and utility items, has been deposited with the Ethnographic Collection of the National Museum of Denmark. In 1954 Niels Fock conducted an anthropological study on the indigenous Waiwai in British Guiana and in 1958 and 1961 on the indigenous Mataco in Argentina.
