Example text

And as puzzling as this might sound, more confounding still is that the notion that the very government stewards who claimed to work for preserving Chulucanas' indigenous arts would at once explicitly refrain from issuing a condemnation or even public recognition of the Pier One incident. Such a public condemnation or even simple recognition - whether of violating cultural tradition, transgressing community norms, or breaching business contracts -- in fact, would never come. It was as if the incident of global cultural fraud had appalled everyone except those public officials most actively involved in the contemporary promotion and protection of Chulucanas' ceramics traditions.

And fewer contracts meant in the end, fewer jobs for residents. In the midst of the state-directed celebrations around Chulucanas' ancestral traditions in ceramics making, the village's (and likely, the country's) largest sales hoax in traditional exports had somehow been committed. And even as the details surrounding the magnitude of the scandal and its responsible parties were still unfolding, state workers were channeling their efforts not into answering the confounding question of how it could have happened to begin with and how to prevent its repetition, but into the organizing the festivities celebrating the town and its own history of honoring traditional production techniques.
