Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The relations between the Salesian Congregation and the indigenous peoples of Ecuador cover a vast spectrum of religious, spiritual, cultural and material ties, as the indigenous cultures that make up the country are different and multilingual. The Salesian presence among the Amazonian and Serrano Indians, during these 124 years of missionary and catechetical activity, can be divided into three moments of a continuous process of socio-cultural accompaniment, in which each moment has successively increased its action. More with the desire to describe the Salesian experience among the indigenous Ecuadorians, and far from any pretension of classification, the following three moments are proposed: a first moment of establishment that goes from 1893 to 1959; a second moment of expansion between 1971 and 1988; and a third moment of diversification from 1994 to date.
