ALVES, Syntia y PEREZ GANAN, Rocío. DIVINE GLANCES: ELEMENTS OF RESISTANCE TO THE IBERIAN PENINSULA'S COLONIZATIONIN AFRO-ECUADORIAN AND AFRO-BRAZILIANRELIGIOUS EXPRESSIONS. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2016, n.49, pp.81-89. ISSN 0719-2681. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812016000100010.
Evidence of African origin in the people of Esmeraldas can be found in their religious expressions. Throughout history these ele-ments, possessors of a specific identity, have been the very spaces of resistance to the cultural imposition of colonization. While the majority of the Afro-Ecuadoria population is Catholic, it is possible to find within its religiosity the components of resistance which have remained active, and which are in some respects similar to the expressions found in Brazil, constituting a symbolic cartography of spaces appropriated in daily life -"undisciplined" daily spaces-, hidden from the lances of "civilization". In this context, this article'spurpose is topresentfield research carried out in Esemeraldas (Ecuador) and Sao Paulo (Brasil) in search of common aspects of Afro-American religiosity. The article is a comparative study of two specific forms, namely, the arrullos of Ecuador and the Brazilian candomblé.
