This is a study of the interactions between the native people in Choco and the invading spanish forces throughout much of the colonial period, revealing the complexity of inter-ethnic relations in frontier regions. The author considers the changing relationships not only between Spaniards and local inhabitants but also between factions of both groups, showing how both groupssometimes allied with each other against other ethnically mixed groups with different agendas. No similar study covers this topic.

"Such colonial records are often heavily biased towards the colonisers' point of view, but those relating to the long-drawn-out subjection of the Cithara "have proved remarkably rich in the kind of detail that enables us to gain important insights into the perfectives, motivations and interests of this indomitable indigenous group, and of the changes and continuities experienced by their peoples over a long period of contact, peaceful and otherwise". The british Bulletin, Issue 113 2005
