Over the past few decades indigenous groups in Latin America have organized large-scale movements that have resulted in dramatic political changes. In 1994, indigenous people from the Chiapas region in Mexico participated in an armed rebellion to protest neoliberal policies. In 2000, indigenous mobilizations in Ecuador forced the resignation of the president. In 2005, the Bolivian people elected an indigenous man to the presidency. This course explores the historical antecedents of these events and other examples taken from Chile, Peru, Guatemala, and the Amazon region. We will discuss themes such as the role of women, demands for territorial and political autonomy, changing ideas about ethnic and national identity, environmental concerns, transnational activism, and how indigenous people have responded to globalization.
