Making Indigenous Citizens
Identities, Education, and Multicultural Development in Peru
Author: Mar¨ªa Elena Garc¨ªa

Set against conventional views of Peru as a place where indigenous mobilization
has been absent, this book examines the complex, contentious politics between
intercultural activists, local Andean indigenous community members, state
officials, non-governmental organizations, and transnationally-educated
indigenous intellectuals. It examines the paradoxes and possibilities of Quechua
community protests against intercultural bilingual education, official
multicultural policies implemented by state and non-state actors, and the
training of ¡°authentic¡± indigenous 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 indigenous politics are inextricably and simultaneously local and
global. In exploring some of the seeming contradictions of Peruvian indigenous
politics, Making Indigenous Citizens suggests that indigenous movements and
citizenship are articulated in extraordinary but under-explored ways in Latin
America and beyond.
