Xanvil is organization dedicated to promoting sustainable communities, gender equity and environmental conservation
The project is significant on many levels. We will obtain crucial archaeological and historical information on the creation of a new ethnic group that was formed during the European conquest and colonization of the New World. The project takes advantage of the particular strengths of archaeology and history to examine the material and social evidence for ethnicity and culture change over a long period. Our project will gather data to examine these unknowns of the ethnogenesis process. We will also look at ethnogenesis in cultural evolutionary terms: the origin of societies and their tribalization during colonial expansion as a response for the preservation of native ethnicity.
