Was it decolonial? Luis F. Angosto-Ferrández, ‘Indigenous Peoples, Social Movements, and the Legacy of Hugo Chávez’s Governments’, Latin American Perspectives, 2016
Abstract: The unprecedented enfranchisement of Venezuela’s indigenous population is partly a result of the formation of a state-sponsored indigenous movement. This movement prioritizes access to social services, economic development, and political participation in state structures over certain goals of free determination. Other forms of collective action with different priorities are evidence of the existence of diverging interests and goals among indigenous people. These divergences are a reflection of the way in which the indigenous population partakes in the shaping of contemporary Venezuelan politics.
