Abstract

The following work studies the coexistence of worldviews in the Eñepá community of La Batea in the Venezuelan Amazon, which was evangelized by New Tribes Mission around the 1970s. The researcher continually visited this community for three years, between 2014 and 2016. During this period, the reality of this community showed to be a complex coexistence of different worldviews, in which the Eñepá belief-system managed to resist its complete replacement by Christianity. On the one hand, the Evangelization process implied important changes in their own religious practices and mythical discourses, while, on the other, many elements of their beliefs and cultural practices managed to survive, as they did not belong to the same order of thought and worldview as the Christian belief system.
