Abstract:My working hypothesis is that the Contra-Miskitu armed conflict strengthened Honduran and Nicaraguan consciousness of belonging to one, indivisible society despite a climate of overt hostility between both populations. Both Miskitu aggregates contributed to the generation of a process of ethnogenesis that strengthened the structures of their cultural belief systems and their understanding of the similarities and differences between Miskitu people of both nations.
