Wayana eitoponpë : (une) histoire (orale) des Indiens Wayana by Jean Chapuis( Book )
7 editions published in 2003 in French and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cet ouvrage est consacré aux Wayana, groupe Carib localisé principalement sur les berges du Haut Maroni, en Guyane française.La première partie, coordonnée par Jean Chapuis, nous livre un important corpus bilingue retraçant le point de vue de ces Amérindiens sur leur propre passé, depuis la genèse, et ceci principalement à travers la voix d'un vieillard considéré comme le plus savant de son groupe. On assiste de l'intérieur aux importants changements qui ont affectés les sociétés de la région depuis plusieurs siècles pour aboutir aux groupes que nous connaissons actuellement. Les courtes notices introduisant à chacun des récits et les nombreuses notes de bas de page permettent à la fois de restituer le contexte et de saisir le particulier, de pénétrer dans les détails de la culture wayana.La seconde partie, fruit des efforts de Hervé Rivière, correspond au Kalau, récitatif ésotérique complexe qui constitue le pivot des cérémonies d'initiation masculines (connues sous le terme de maraké) et représente un des référents identitaires majeurs du groupe
La personne Wayana entre sang et ciel by Jean Chapuis( )
8 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in French and Undetermined and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
IN THIS WORK, THE AUTHOR INTENDS TO ANALYSE THE PERSON AS A SYSTEM AMONG THE WAYANA OF THE LITANY RIVER, FRENCH GUIANA. AFTER A PRESENTATION OF THIS ETHNIC GROUP AND AN HISTORY OF ANTHROPOLOGICAL CONCEPTIONS OF PERSON, THE AUTHOR PROVIDES A VERY DETAILED ANTHROPOLOGY OF THE BODY AS IT CAN BE CONCEIVED, REPRESENTED AND PRACTICED. THE PROBLEM OF DEATH IS ALSO EXAMINED. THEN, THE AUTHOR STUDIES THE NON BODILY COMPONENTS AND THE STATUS OF PERSON IN RELATION WITH SURNATURAL ENTITIES. IN THE LAST PART, THE RELATIONS OF THE PERSON WITH THE VARIOUS LEVELS OF REALITY (SOCIAL WORLD, NATURE, WORLD OF THE DREAM) - RELATIONS WICH ALL CONTRIBUTE TO ITS DEFINITION - ARE CONSIDERED THROUGH DIFFERENT THEMES. FINALLY, THE AUTHOR SHOWS, THROUGH THE PROBLEM OF THE EFFICACY OF THE MEDICAL USES, HOW THE SYSTEM OF PERSON FUNCTIONS AS A GENERAL SYSTEM TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE EXPECTATIONS OF A DETERMINATED GROUP : IN FACT THIS SYSTEM OF PERSON IS AN ANSWER TO THE WHOLE QUESTIONING OF THE GROUP. SO WE CAN UNDERSTAND FOR EXAMPLE HOW THE SYSTEM OF ILLNESS IS INTEGRATED IN THE SYSTEM OF PERSON. THIS WORK IS OFTEN BASED ON A LEXICAL ANALYSIS AND IS CONCEIVED LIKE A NETWORK IN WHICH EACH SUBJECT REFERS TO MANY OTHERS

Alcoolisme et toxicomanie chez les Amérindiens de l'intérieur de la Guyane approche socio-médicale by Delphine Benoit( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We have studied the consumption of psychoactive substances by Amerindians communities from the South of French Guiana : Wayampis, Emerillons and Wayanas. We have established a typology of the consumed substances: alcohol is largely represented, marijuana _which has been known by the Amerindians for approximately 25 years_ is also consumed more and more, cocaine and crack have made a growing appearance a few years ago. We have identified several ways to alcohol consumption allowing us to predict a risk of addiction: first, the "traditional" way, which follows a pattern similar to the consumption of cachiri, can be defined as an over consumption of alcohol; the second "not-traditional" style of consumption where the circumstances of alcoholization are similar to the Western mode of consumption, also seems to determine a possible drift towards addiction. Drugs are consumed on a comparable pattern to the Western mode. The predisposing factors or causal factors to drug addiction are cultural, social and environmental, and must be considered in a context both historical and of acculturation. The consequences of consumption are of a social, psychological and medical nature. The results of the study show that alcoholism and drug-addiction are an extensive problem spreading rapidly among the Amerindian communities. It is time to act by developing programs of prevention and curative action, whose development and application must be done by multidisciplinary and especially multicultural teams. The implication of the Amerindians on all the levels, is a necessary condition to determine specific action plans
