This seminar examines Indigenous People knowledge through community resistance, social movements and how globalization impacts in their lives. The objective is to achieve an in-depth appreciation of Indigenous resistance through some countries of Latin American and how it will vary according to each country and circumstances. Students will analyze path-breaking documents that marked these histories.

Reading and discussions will be in English and Spanish.
