Anthropology 245. Indigenous Movements of Latin America

This course takes a topical approach to contemporary challenges facing indigenous peoples in Latin America. The course uses recent ethnographic accounts to give us an in-depth understanding of the struggles, achievements and meaning-making practices of indigenous peoples in Latin America. We focus on identity-making practices of indigenous ethnic groups in their struggles within the states of Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Guatemala and Mexico.
