'More power to the Indians' : Roger Casement, the
Putumayo, and indigenous rights.
Irish Journal of Anthropology, 14 (2).
Marking the centenary of Roger Casement's
humanitarian investigations in the Putumayo region of
the Upper Amazon, this article suggests that he notr only
recognized the abuses there as systemic but increasingly saw
them as part of the wider features of exploitation which
accompanied colonization and empire. His Putumayo
work illustrated a long-term commitment on his part to
what we would term today indigenous rights.
