Description
The social structure of the Macanese 'filos da terra' (Lat: 'terrae filii'; Port.: 'filhos da terra'; or: sons and daughters of the soil), has a truly original stamp that can only be understood within the confines of a study integrating the different variables that acted as real stimulus for their identification as a group.
Who are the Macanese from an anthropobiological and cultural point of view? How was this group organized and how did it isolate itself throughout four centuries of Macanese history?
To what kind of biophysical and socio-cultural environment did this group have to adapt itself and how did it achieve this?
