KAZIANKA, Barbara. Shifts in the Relations Between Wayuu and Yolujaa as a Result of Evangelical Christian Beliefs. Tabula Rasa [online]. 2020, n.36, pp.247-266.  Epub Feb 26, 2021. ISSN 1794-2489.

Ancestors play a very important role for the Wayuu people. Their relationship is based on protection, exchange and special forms of wisdom transmission. This article intends to answer the question of whether contacts between Christian and missionary notions might have transformed the relation between Wayuu members who call themselves evangelical, while they do not belong to any specific Christian church, and their ancestors, their cosmology and ontology.

Keywords : Wayuu people; ontology; evangelical belief; shift of relations..
