Cultural anthropologists use the term otherness to refer to the concept and treatment of the alien objectified “other,” stressing that dominant creations of difference and images of otherness are part and parcel of processes of exclusion. From the conquest on, Latin American indigenous peoples have been viewed as natural-born slaves, devil worshippers, bloody rebels, passive beasts of burden, and obstacles for modernity. Examining the social and cultural processes that have created these images of otherness, this course aims at explaining indigenous past and current struggles, from the conquest to contemporary indigenous movements.
