At their peak in 1732, over 140,000 Guaraní Indians inhabited thirty Jesuit missions in the Río de la Plata region of South America. These missions served as the model for converting, acculturating, settling, and protecting dispersed Indian groups in the frontier regions of the Spanish Americas, but by 1801, they had lost two-thirds of their population and were struggling to maintain their very existence. This presentation explores both how as a result of late 18th century reforms the Guaraní increasingly became involved in the market economy inside and outside of their missions and how this process played a key role in causing the missions’ decline and changing quality of life of the Guaraní.
