Group Description


"An extinct language that used to be spoken by the Abipones tribe in Argentina, between Rio Bermejo, Rio Salado and Paraná river."

"The Abipon were an indigenous people of South America. They lived in the lower Bermejo River area in the Argentine Gran Chaco. The tribe was one of the tribes that belonged to the linguistic group Guaycuru. The Abipon consisted of three dialect groups that included the Nakaigetergehe (“Forest People”), Riikahe (“People of the Open Country”), and the Yaaukaniga (“Water People”). The “Water People” were believed to have attached themselves to the Abipon after they were defeated by the Spanish at Santa Fe. In 1750, the Abipon numbered an estimated 5000 people."

"Dalton describes all three stages of European peasant development, and focuses especially on the transitions between phases to prove the legitimacy of his comparison. Differentiation between the different types of payments for land and the types of land tenure systems plays a pivotal role in his analysis of the three stages present in peasantry development. He looks at aspects both economic and political in nature through all three stages, of course focusing on technological aspects in the early and late modernization periods. To make the previous discussion relevant, Dalton now tries to show how peasant economies differ from tribal economies by using many examples (Tiv, Nuer, Trobianders) with information from the ethnographies of others."
