Description

In Central America, several groups received political autonomy at the end of the 20th century. By granting autonomy to these groups, countries like Nicaragua acknowledged certain populations as members of distinct ethnic groups. This was not the case for every country in the region, and the lack of effective policy making ethno-racial considerations in politics across Central America has led to language attrition, loss of land and water rights, and the commodification of historic communities. Means' presentation focuses on Honduras as a unique site of ethno-racial and socio-cultural policy making, group identity making and unmaking, and group rights for the Garifuna.
