Last Rites for the Tipu Maya: Genetic Structuring in a Colonial Cemetery

Last Rites for the Tipu Maya: Genetic Structuring in a Colonial Cemetery by Keith P. Jacobi
English | Dec. 13, 2000 | ISBN: 0817310258 | 400 Pages | PDF | 3.64 MB

Jacobi's groundbreaking osteology study uncovers the history of the Tipu Maya of Belize and their subsequent contact with the Spanish conquistadores and missionaries.

Two cultures collided at Tipu, Belize, in the 1600s: that of the native Maya and that of the Spanish missionaries, who arrived with an agenda of religious subjugation and, ultimately, political control. Combining historical documentation with the results of an archaeological exploration of a Tipu cemetery, Keith Jacobi provides an account of the meshing of these two cultures and the assimilation of Catholic practices by the Tipu.
