This article develops the concept of neo-colonial masculinities in an attempt to explain the structures of social relationships which help us to understand mestizo, European and American men social practices in their dealings with Bribri indigenous community –Costa Rica southern Caribe, at the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In order to develop this notion, this paper reviews several analytical corpora, namely decolonial studies, on masculinities, and middle classes in post colonial India, and coloured feminisms.

Keywords: masculinity, race, class, coloniality, intersectionality.
