This book is the first to describe indigenous archaeology in Latin America for an English speaking audience. Eighteen chapters primarily by Latin American scholars describe relations between indigenous peoples and archaeology in the frame of national histories and examine the emergence of the native interest in their heritage. Relationships between archaeology and native communities are ambivalent: sometimes an escalating battleground, sometimes a promising site of intercultural encounters. The global trend of indigenous empowerment today has renewed interest in history, making it a tool of cultural meaning and political legitimacy. This book deals with the topic with a raw forthrightness not often demonstrated in writings about archaeology and indigenous peoples. Rather than being `politically correct,' it attempts to transform rather than simply describe.

"This edited volume contains contributions from throughout Latin America that center around the emerging dialogue between indigenous peoples and archaeologists. The book represents a significant contribution to the discipline-wide conversation about the development and direction of indigenous archaeology. Because the authors draw from their experience in Latin America, the volume also provides instructive examples of different approaches to crafting productive collaborative relationships between archaeologists and indigenous peoples this book [is] an important resource for academic library collections in archaeology, indigenous archaeology, public archaeology, and cultural resource management. Summing Up: Highly recommended."
