Lucas Bessire studies the contradictory ways that indigenous kinds of humanity are defined and governed in Latin America in order to describe how the category of culture increasingly delimits a reductive politics of legitimate life. How might we conceptualize an alternative foundation for a publicly relevant anthropology of indigeneity?
