Clues in a Modern Sierra Leonean Landscape
This chapter attempts to provide an interpretation of the history of Sierra Leone based on its modern landscape. It discusses the special powers of dissimulation and interpretation of Sierra Leonean hunter-warriors and the modern resistance movement they initiated. The analysis indicates that the rural Sierra Leonean landscape does not lend itself to an easy reading of the history embedded in it because conflicts unfold through competing claims to—and interpretations of—the landscape itself. The findings also suggest that the transformation of the landscape was not only embedded on intelligible historical relics in material form but also in the ambiguity of names and in the non-material temporary practices.
