Résumé
Culture, structure, and means of resource mobilization are examined in the context of the Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra in Ceara, Brazil. Specifically, this study reviews the structure of the movement, how it creates a rural, landless worker culture, and its mobilization techniques. Using various theoretical paradigms, the concept of populism, which sees the use of culture as a means to build power to gain recognition, legitimacy, and support, is adapted to this case study. To illustrate this concept, information derives from personal interviews, speeches, mass printed media by the movement and the Brazilian government, and theorists who provide a framework that dissects the movement, illustrates its structural-cultural base, and constructs an interpretation in terms of social movement theory. These factors of analysis provide an innovative approach to linking culture analysis with social movement theory, primarily facets of structure and resource mobilization.

Mots clés : Anthropology, Cultural. ; History, Latin American. ; Sociology, Social Structure and Development.
