Indigenous Rights in Latin America: What Kind of Freedom Do They Offer? With Nancy Postero -- Degrees of Freedom

3/23/2015; 52 minutes

Anthropologist Nancy Postero describes the political rise of indigenous peoples in Latin America, as they called for more recognition from the state and more inclusive forms of citizenship. Where that was impossible, they sought international attention by demanding human rights, especially human rights to culture. Postero explores what kinds of freedom these two frameworks of rights offer and how the struggles of indigenous peoples demonstrate the contradictions and limitations of liberal notions of rights.
