Citation: Mission Culture on the Upper Amazon
Abstract: The native peoples of the Moxos region of modern Bolivia began a cultural transformation with their contact by Jesuit missionaries in the mid 17th century. The amalgamation of autocthonous and European modes formed a particular "mission culture" that endured until the Amazonian rubber boom reached Moxos at the end of the 19th century.
