The concluding discussion joins the current deconstruction—offered by several theorists of migration, religion, and culture—of the notion of apolitical Pentecostals and rural-to-urban migrants on "social strike" in urban religious haciendas (Lalive D'Epinay). The recovered data from the early to mid-twentieth century demonstrates that folks can remain at once both Pentecostal and socially engaged or migratory and politically active—and politically active in unexpected ways. This historical awareness can help nuance the study of religion and politics in Latin America and Latino USA. In terms of culture viewed through theoretical lenses of habitus and everyday practice (Pierre Bourdieu, Michel de Certeau), the Pentecostal subaltern now appears to have been busily at work—adapting, poaching, and reassembling evangelicalismo's offerings—in the first six decades of the twentieth century. The Pentecostal subaltern's voice, it turns out, was never silent, but rather redacted out of the historical record. No longer.
