El archivo indígena. Fuerzas, luchas y acomodos en el pensamiento y las visiones sobre lo indio en Oaxaca

This book reviews the ways in which the indigenous have been thought in Oaxaca. To do so, we analyze what anthropology, laws, intellectuals and leaders of peoples and communities have said and imagined on this subject. By contrasting the conceptions and practices that anthropologists, lawyers, and leaders have deployed in Oaxaca, one can see how an indigenous archive has been created. This can be understood as a wide repertoire of negative and positive images about indigenous people, peoples and communities. For this reason, the archive is a problematic and complex territory where notions and actions are discussed that end up shaping models to act, feel and imagine these issues. In this history, the peoples and communities of Oaxaca appear immersed in a matrix of disintegrating and cohesive forces. In this book it is proposed that the archive has an important role in these struggles. The reader will find here different arguments to understand the place that the disciplines and the thinkers of peoples have had in all this.
