Abstract

Zapatista indigenous autonomy offers new political road maps that chart courses through a complex and contradictory terrain marked by a rearticulation of neoliberal hegemonic forces and a legacy of left politics of recognition positioned between mestizaje ideologies and Indianist discourses. The emerging cartography locates practices of resistance to the political-economic and the cultural logics of late capitalism in the ways in which autonomy links political identity claims to self-governing practices and to struggles for resource redistribution. Similarly, it critiques the ethnic-racialized ordering of society by unmasking the way biological and cultural traits work interchangeably to define dominant constructs of indigenous subjectivity.
