In Purgatorio Dante meets the poet Amaut Daniel who is "preparing for holiness by being purged in the flames of his lust" (Ellis 1983: 214), hinting at the already mentioned connection between the sensuous and the mystic experience (Ellis 1983: 210-211).
In his 'ethnography of the past', Amaut argues that the three generations of young contestants against gerontocratism and neocolonialism (building on three different moments of rupture: the desapparentement (14) and the debates surrounding it in 1950, the democratic turn in 1990, and the 1999 coup d'etat) are not to be regarded as successive generations, but rather as coexisting discursively and thus providing some kind of repertoire for present generations (Amaut 2004: 336-7).
According to Amaut, the term parent was used as some sort of password in the beginning when activists held clandestine meetings.
Among the items I have heard Inuit identify as icons of their culture, three are perhaps most frequently mentioned: inuksuk (an arrangement of boulders often used as a landmark or to direct caribou toward waiting hunters), the amauti (a woman's parka that incorporates an amaut, or baby carrier), and the qayaq (kayak).
