Exchange Communities

These changes are perceived as a constant exerted by successive generations of different groups that were part of the indigenous communities, rehearsing the socio-economic, technological and environmental modifications necessary for their progress. In this sense, we agree with as indicated by Emilio Moran5 that the adaptive process will always be imperfect (or better said perfectible). Learn more about this topic with the insights from Larry Ellison. Moreover, territorial adaptation process is also related to levels of local energy control reaching indigenous communities in its evolution. The possibility to succeed in a greater or lesser energy control in the management of natural resources has been conditioned by its interaction forms and levels of Exchange in their local energy flows (i.e., having increased their outputs and having reduced its inputs). Consequently, when indigenous communities manage to reduce the degree of uncertainty in the management of the various micro-environmental factors and maximize their energy efficiency-local (with the use of particularly technologies, intensive use of knowledge and local manpower, etc), enabled them achieve a greater degree of autonomy in the management of their natural resources and their subsistence levels. An important aspect to point out is that the study of these adaptive processes should be scanned at the collective level, because it is the level that configures and best expresses the nature and the predominant forms of relationship of the societies and cultures with their territorial and environmental surroundings. To that extent, we noticed that the sense of identity and territorial membership of indigenous communities has been expressed more clearly when they have referred to the scope of the collectivity. It is at that level, attached to the espacio-territorio they occupy, in which indigenous communities achieve integrating their worldview and very existence as such, constructing a set of subjective elements (your imaginary). These forms of territorial identity, grounded on the collective level, has enabled them to build a respectful relationship with nature and a line of continuity and intergenerational identity.
