Author(s): Marcela Bernal
While the subject of the contact can be approached from different perspectives (political, economic, social, cultural, religious), in this study the reflection will have to do with power and social control over the daily customs and practices of each group involved in a contact society (which includes categories such as physical space management, nutritional practices and identification of material goods to each of the groups), settle in el Cabo de la Vela to continue with the enterprise for pearl fishing in the sixteenth century. This Spanish settlement could have developed a control as strict or flexible triggering a series of socio-cultural dynamics that may have caused the members of this society to transform their culture and society into a new one.This essay includes some data and results of the first stage of the research.
