Over the last years, a growing number of scholarly works from different disciplines has focused on the indigenous peoples of Latin America. This academic interest has been fueled by the recent wave of indigenous mobilization that, since the 1990s, has spread throughout the region and the resulting relevant role that indigenous movements have come to play in contemporary politics. Mario Blaser joins this discussion with a sophisticated book that, focused on the Yshiro people of the Paraguayan Chaco, opens interesting empirical and theoretical perspectives.
