This forum will challenge and deconstruct this ethnocentric conventional view by arguing that indigenous women are not only politically active but are at the forefront of forces reshaping Latin America. Their legal advocacy not only creates unprecedented legislation in the world, their legal re-assemblage disrupts state-centric understandings of sovereignty.
