Based on extended ethnographic fieldwork conducted over the course of more than two decades,Intimate Indigeneitiesexplores the multiple identities of a community of people in the Bolivian highlands through their own lived experiences and their own voices. Andrew Canessa examines how gender, race, and ethnic identities manifest themselves in everyday interactions in an Aymara village. Canessa illustrates that indigeneity is highly contingent and thoroughly imbricated with gendered, racial, and linguistic identities as well as informed by an historical consciousness. Addressing how whiteness and Indianness are reproduced as hegemonic structures in the village, how masculinities develop as men go to the mines and army, and how memories of a violent past are used to construct a present sense of community, Canessa raises important questions about indigenous politics as well as about the very nature of indigenous identity.
