viewed as private property, and that the loggers often entered plots uninvited and without

asking permission. The majority of the problem may stem from this violation of cultural

propriety.

Chaguite Grande and Quebrada Honda were also divided. Once the management

plan was completed, most younger resineros left resin tapping and worked in the logging

groups. Some resineros continued tapping through the whole drama. Now they feel

vindicated in their convictions because of the bad things that happened. In Chaguite

Grande, these people, the “Old Guard,” influenced the cooperative and the community to

simplify things and go back to the old way, focusing on resin tapping. In Quebrada

Honda, the “New Guard” still prevails.

There is no black and white. The view of the Old Guard that resin tapping can go

on forever without logging is just not possible. Nor is it realistic to think that these

groups will drop all their old ways and embrace logging as their new bread and butter.

Experiences in agricultural extension projects worldwide have repeatedly demonstrated

that old ways die hard. They have also taught the lesson that new isn’t always better.

Fortunately, this study exhibits some grey examples that utilize communication and

compromise.
