Carl Langebaek, Vice President for Research at the University of the Andes, Colombia, discusses the nature of power among indigenous societies in pre-Hispanic Colombia.
He considers how power was acquired and manipulated, how it affected or benefited indigenous people, whether members of the elite had higher standards of living, and whether their descendants were able to inherit this power.
In collaboration with Embassy of Colombia to the United Kingdom.
