Volume 16, Issue 1 (2018-2019) Indigenous Peoples in Isolation: Terminology, Territory and Processes of Contact

The bulk of this special issue represents the elaboration of papers first presented at a special session, “Indigenous Peoples in Isolation: Terminology, Territory and Processes of Contact,” organized by Minna Opas, Felipe Milanez, Luis Felipe Torres, and Glenn Shepard for the XI Salsa Conference held in Lima, Peru during July 2017. The session featured a keynote address presented by Antenor Vaz, formerly of the Brazilian National Indian Foundation, that is included in this issue. Readers should take note of the short document consisting of resolutions derived from the collective discussions of the session participants formulated to guide the conduct of states and civil society actors with respect to voluntarily isolated peoples. Other papers by Meirelles, Amorim, Narvaez, Milanez, Opas and Zorilla, and the Catholic Indigenous Missionary Council (Conselho Indigenista Missionário) support team for voluntarily isolated peoples provide a cross section of views to complement the array of academic, peer-reviewed articles by Soria Dall’Orso, Machineri et al., Rolando, Torres, and Mentore. The public remarks made by Make Turu, a leader of the Matís people as well as a municipal councilman in Atalaia do Norte in the Brazilian state of Amazonas are published here as well. Together the papers provide a wealth of information and perspectives that can be used in the ongoing struggle across the Americas to create inclusive democratic states that are responsive to different indigenous lifeways. We are fortunate to be able to offer a commentary by Prof. Espinosa of the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru on the Opening Lecture, “A Window into Twenty Years of Amazonianist Anthropology in Peru (1997–2017)” proffered by Jean-Pierre Chaumeil at the XI Salsa conference and featured in the previous volume of Tipití (15:105–117). The review of the Chilean exhibit by Mapuche visual artist, Barnardo Oyarzún, represents Tipití’s first foray into museum reviews. We hope more will follow. Peer reviewers made this publication possible. They deserve the hearty thanks of the entire SALSA community. Thanks are also due to the Lima organizers of the special session: Minna Opas, Felipe Milanez, Luis Felipe Torres and Glenn Shepard, who served as guest editors for this issue. Tipití associate editor, Dan Rosengren, was indefatigable as well as indispensable, especially for the Spanish-language contributions. Thanks are also due to Lauren Bridges, Emily Colon, Barbara Watanabe, and most especially to Kevin Richeson for invaluable technical and production assistance. Dr. Julie Velasquez Runk beat the bushes for great reviews. Talented copyeditors Joe Fitzgibbon, Romulo Lelis Lima, Jorge Terukina, Natalia Matta-Jarra, and Jonathan Arries also put their shoulders to the wheel, rueda, and roda for this issue. The SALSA Board and officers provided needed moral support and funds to make this endeavor viable.
