Edited film documents a case study of the formal means by which order and internal social cohesion are maintained among the Aymara in the Andes highlands of Bolivia. Featured is Ticona, the General Secretary of the Agricultural League, in his role as the mediator of village conflicts. Several scenarios are described. Emphasis is placed on Ticona's role of promoting shared cultural values, settling disputes, and reaching peaceful conclusions to conflict. Also addressed is the delicate relationship between Ticona and Jilakata, the traditional village leader. Themes explored are the use and abuse of alcohol, the importance of body language, and general strategies used to appease conflicts. Edited film was made from the Bolivia project from the American Unviersity Field Staff Faces of Change Series.
