About this product
- DescriptionSet against conventional views of Peru as a place where indigeus mobilization has been absent, this book examines the complex, contentious politics between intercultural activists, local Andean indigeus community members, state officials, n-governmental organizations, and transnationally-educated indigeus intellectuals. It examines the paradoxes and possibilities of Quechua community protests against intercultural bilingual education, official multicultural policies implemented by state and n-state actors, and the training of authentic indigeus leaders far from their home communities. Focusing on important local sites of transnational connections, especially in the highland communities of Cuzco, and on an international academic institute for the study of intercultural bilingual education, this book shows how contemporary indigeus politics are inextricably and simultaneously local and global. In exploring some of the seeming contradictions of Peruvian indigeus politics, Making Indigeus Citizens suggests that indigeus movements and citizenship are articulated in extraordinary but under-explored ways in Latin America and beyond.
