Resumen

MARTINEZ BERNAL, Daniel Ricardo. Nonviolence in the Nasa people, from northern Cauca: relation between theory and specific experience. Polis [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.43, pp.159-180. ISSN 0718-6568.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-65682016000100008.

Indigenous resistances in the Cauca department constitute some of the main alternatives to the violence cycles experienced in Colombia. Through historical comparison methodology, participatory action and in-depth interviews, data was collected, which allowed knowledge of the indigenous communities’ own ideas and meanings around the concept of nonviolence. A practical-theoretical comparison, the relations (similar and divergent characteristics) between the data on the communities’ concept of nonviolence and the theoretical and doctrinal statements of non-violent resistance, allowed an analysis, based on practices and experiences, of non-violence as understood by the indigenous communities of the Cauca department in Colombia. The research is based on the hypothesis that the studied communities have specific political and practical conditions which constitute them in an example of conflict resolution and political action through un-armed, civil, un-bloody means; especially for the Colombian context. They have experiences showing “generic”, but also lasting, struggles, and “specific struggles”, products of the evolution of a historical resistance thought.

Palabras clave : Nonviolence; Nasa people; Nasa resistance; Specific nonviolence.
