Lee Maracle and Ángela Chislla Palomino in conversation with Ingrid Bejerman

Being indigenous: culture, history and self-definition

Arequipa 2017, 

The Peruvian government is carrying out its first self-definition census, the aim of which is that citizens describe their ethnic origin. In a country as multicultural as Peru, this census can be seen as a historical milestone of great importance in terms of raising the profile of native cultures. Lee Maracle is an expert in indigenous culture, a writer and an academic. Ángela Chissla Palomino is a member of ONAMIAP for Puno. They will talk to Ingrid Bejerman about what it means to be indigenous in the Americas.
