Abstract

The exclusion of indigenous peoples is a critical issue in several countries of Latin America and has become more salient as the indigenous themselves have mobilized. Pressures from below are changing the contours of politics, most notably in Bolivia and Ecuador, but also in Guatemala, Peru, and even in Mexico, which has the largest indigenous population of any country in the Western hemisphere.

Keywords: indigenous peoples, Latin Amercia, Bolivia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Peru, Mexico
