P.1 Molly McMahon Anthr4710 Dr. B.J. Isbell 11/2/2011 “Finding Cholita” The oppression experienced by so many people of the Ayacucho village is vividly portrayed through the words in this fictional ethnography. I could just envision this tiny young girl with matted hair in desperate need of a good washing and chicken grease smeared all over her face, crouched underneath the table like some kind of animal. I could feel my stomach churn with nausea as El Capitan discussed his preference for round hips and full breasts. I could feel the anger swell inside me when I read how terribly these people were forced to live, and how cruelly those of the native Incan descent were treated. Upon opening the text, the initial Dr. Alice Woodsley embodies this naïve, green- behind-the-ear anthropologist who is eager to learn of a culture in her earliest ethnographic study. She seems to find herself torn over what she discovers- the rape, the neglect, the abuse, the downright inhumanity and total destruction incurred by the Shining Path regime.
