Abstract

This article explores the development of Guyana's interior during cooperative socialism between 1970 and 1986 and its lasting influence on Amerindian environmental politics. It shows that the government's agenda of resource development included agricultural cooperatives, a new regional structure of governance, a villagization scheme, a hydropower project, and growth in small-scale mining. It demonstrates that diffuse village–state relations are compromising cultural and territorial integrity as distinct peoples under transitions to neoliberalism in the postsocialist era. It concludes that debates over land rights and resource development in Guyana indicate overlapping spatial and temporal territorializations redefining territory, identity, and space on multiple scales
