Search Safari's Guide to History of Ecuador Contents Pre Colombian History The Conquest The Early Years The Fight for Independence ... The Republic of Ecuador Pre Colombian History For 12,000 years Ecuador has been home to various civilizations. Early cultures celebrated the history of their forefathers through songs, dances, and story telling. Oral history was an important part of religious ceremonies. Little of this history remains today. The Spanish forcefully converted the indigenous culture to Catholicism, religious ceremonies were abandoned and many of the stories forgotten. The tales that endured are of the Inca's who arrived in Ecuador shortly before the Spanish. Information about earlier cultures is attributed to the archeological treasures discovered throughout the country. Ecuador is a young country archeologically speaking, the importance of unearthing and preserving ruins does not have the enthusiastic support of the country and scientists as in Mexico, Peru, Egypt or Turkey. Many of the country's ruins remain buried, left simply as a mysterious symbol of an earlier culture. One can only imagine what has left to be discovered. Opportunities to learn about Pre-Colombian cultures include the well-preserved ruins in Machalilla and Ingapirca or visiting one of the excellent museums housing a collections of art work and tools. The first known culture of Ecuador is the Las Vegas, a group of hunters and gathers who lived on the Santa Elena Peninsula between the Guavas Basin and Salinas. Living in houses and making textiles they enjoyed a varied economy and they existed by farming crops including maize and squash, hunting, and exploiting the mangroves for wood, oysters and other seafood. The museum "Museo de los Amantes de Sumpa" near Santa Elena houses displays of the Las Vegas and tells the story of their culture.

A Mormon Missionary In Equador We were told in no uncertain terms by our mission president, a former governmentofficial (he was always rather secretive about his former career go figure http://www.exmormon.org/whylft19.htm
Extractions: I get touched by all these stories. This one is great and I hope all who read this will be able to learn more about the Mormon experience This is from: email@example.com Here at work we recently have been hooked into the Internet, and I have availed myself of the opportunity to browse through various topics. I was more than a little surprised to find so much information regarding the Mormons, and their various detractors. You see, I am also a former member of the LDS church. A little background on my mind set; I do not have anything against the Mormons, nor have I ever set out to disabuse any active member of their fallacious (from my point of view) belief system. I feel that religion and spirituality, while mutually exclusive of one another, are a personal thing not unlike an individual's spouse/lover. As such, they completely subjective to the individual, and have no basis in facts, provable datum, or any other quantifiable medium. I would no more want to tell a person that their religion is "wrong" than I would tell a friend that his/her spouse was ugly. When I left the Mormons, I did it on my own; no fanfare, no histrionic requests for excommunication or removal from the records. They are simply a worldly organization, and as such have no power over my own personal brand of spirituality. Any request for those actions would have given validation to any claims that they thought they might have over my soul. I my view, they have none.

Extractions: What happened in Ecuador? Ecuador is on the north-west coast of Latin America and is home to around 11 million people, the vast majority of which are very poor. The Ecuadorian people need a great deal of support to enable them to climb out of the poverty pit they find themselves in. I am going to spend 4 weeks this summer (1999) in a small village called Nuevos Horizontes which is about four hours from Quito (the capital) by road down the Andes. Nuevos Horizontes houses a basic health clinic and dental surgery which serves the poorer people in the vicinity. The health centre is run by Christians from all denominations who have a passion for the underpriviledged. Latin Link is the organisation through which I have found the opening, enabling me to travel to Ecuador and complete my elective period. I will be doing both research into the dental health problems of the Ecuadorian people along with some basic dental treatment. I am in no doubt God has kindly offered me this placement for a huge number of reasons, most of which I will discover in the future. Just now it is suffice to say that He wants to open my eyes to a way of life beyond my imagination, which has it's good as well as bad points. I want to offer a token gesture of dental help to the people I meet in return for everything I will surely gain from my trip.

VENEZUELA: The Other War For Oil In an act of solidarity, unions representing oil workers in Colombia and Equadorhave offered to help the Venezuelan government break the lockout. http://www.greenleft.org.au/back/2003/521/521p18.htm
Extractions: BY STUART MUNCKTON Reading the mainstream press over the last month, one could be forgiven for believing that Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez has become so unpopular that his government is facing a revolt by the country's workers. The oil industry provides some 50% of government revenue and accounts for a third of Venezuela's gross national product. Venezuela is the world's fifth largest oil producing country and is the third largest supplier of petroleum to the United States. The Chavez government put a halt to PDVSA management's plans for full privatisation of the company, and introduced legislation requiring all of PDVSA's revenues to come under government control. This helps explains why Venezuela's big capitalist families have been so desperate to get rid of Chavez. These families are also being supported by the US government, which is acting to defend the profits of US oil corporations. In many ways, though, what has frightened Venezuelan capitalists and their US backers most of all is the mass radicalisation of the workers and peasants that has been encouraged by the Chavez government. The working majority, overwhelmingly of black or indigenous descent, are no longer willing to be ruled by a wealthy elite that, in different forms, has dominated the country's political life since the Spanish conquest. Despite controlling the private media, the elite's support among the population has narrowed since the failed April military coup, while the workers and peasants have become further radicalised and organised.
