Summary:
"Based on ethnographic fieldwork, interviews, and historical research, Deeply Rooted in the Present illustrates the processes that contribute to making cultural identity, and the ways in which memories, knowledge, and experience are made into heritage. Using a quilombola community (descendants of enslaved Africans) in Northeast Brazil as a case study, Kenny asks what it means to be a quilombola in the 21st century. In the process, she demonstrates how heritage and identity do not simply exist, but are continually being made and remade according to the social, cultural and political needs of the present. The book includes an appendix of supplementary exercises that encourage readers to make connections between the case study at hand, their own heritage, and heritage making efforts in other parts of the world."-- Provided by publisher.
