Leadership in Public Arenas

Yuquileaders, or Ererecua, had considerably more power than the consensual leadership typically associated with a band level of political organization, again pointing to decul-turation. Typically, leadership passed from father to son, although it was not uncommon for a nephew or other male relative to be given the role of leader if the Ererecua's male heirs were deemed unworthy of the position. Although women did not hold public positions of power, they were markedly influential in the decisions reached by their husbands, sons, and brothers.

With contact, Yuquileadership shifted from the traditional hereditary patrilineal leadership passed down from father to son along a particular line of Saya males, to men possessing other skills such as the ability to speak, read, and write in Spanish and to interact comfortably with Bolivian nationals.
