ZAPATA SILVA, Claudia. Theoretical movements and political projects in the emergent Mapuche and Aymara historiography. Estud. filos. práct. hist. ideas [online]. 2007, n.9, pp. 169-180. ISSN 1851-9490.
This article analyzes the appearance of mapuche and aymara historians in Chile and Bolivia. These historians are part of a wider group, formed by indigenous intellectuals recently emerged (in the second half of the 20th century). These intellectuals have studied different disciplines at the university and are actually developing a written work with a strong commitment to their ethnic collectives. I discuss in this paper the authors concern and interpretation of the past, as well as the position they occupy in the field of historiography and the political potential they see in it.
