Abstract

Abstract:

This article explores the connections between the creative work and political action of five Indigenous writers from Mexico and Colombia, studying how they enact resistance in: poetry as rebellion; public scholarship in national newspapers; participation in mass marches; authoring of public letters; and promotion of Indigenous lifeways. The five, Ruperta Bautista (Tzotzil), Fredy Chikangana/Wiñay Mallki (Yanakuna), Hubert Matiúwàa (Mè'phàà), Mikeas Sánchez (Zoque), and Vicenta Siosi (Wayuu), have become important spokespeople and participate in a global social movement led by Indigenous communities in the defense of water and lands, and in opposition to corporate extraction of both natural and human resources.
