The Mapuche in Chile and their Forms of Collective Autonomy
Conceptions of self-government and autonomy among the Mapuche of Chile have fluctuated within the context of a changing Chilean nation-state. Based on three years of ethnographic field work by a Mapuche scholar, this dissertation examines the historical relationship between indigenous peoples and the Chilean nation-state. This study will further our understanding of indigenous struggles for cultural and political rights.
