The need to deepen the study of nationality formation and consolidation processes in Cuba, has found in the Masonic fraternity an unobjectionable source of information, closely linked to the deepest roots of nationalist thought and feeling. Masonic researches have become vital in unraveling the historical fabric that gave way to the beginning of struggles for the Island independence. The present research, as part of a doctoral thesis project -in the initial phase-, aims to elucidate the importance this subject refers to researchers from Cuba and the world. It also pretends to focus on Freemasonry in Guantánamo province, as an effort to explain the main factors that contribute to the social reproduction of Masonic fraternity from a sociological perspective which is an insufficiently studied subject into the Cuban context. The relationships that underlie the fraternal group's behavior and cohesion will be revealed by using the prosopographic method, the theory of social networks and the analysis of socialization forms.
