In Bolivia, the discourse on indigenous peoples intensified within the previous couple of many years, culminating within the election of Evo Morales as president in 2005. Indigenous individuals are portrayed by means of the Morales govt as modest, communitarian, humble, negative, anticapitalist, and economically marginalized. In his 2006 inaugural speech, Morales famously defined indigenous humans as “the ethical reserve of humanity.” His rhetoric has reached all degrees of society—most significantly the recent political structure of 2009. This structure initiated a brand new regime of substantial ethnic personality by means of defining thirty-six indigenous international locations and languages.

Beyond Indigeneity bargains new research into indigenous identification and social mobility that adjustments the discourse in Latin American social anthropology. writer Alessandra Pellegrini Calderón issues out that Morales’s presidency has ended in heightened exposure of coca concerns and an intensification of indigeneity discourse, echoing a world development of elevated acceptance of indigenous peoples’ claims. The “living good” angle (vivir bien) enshrined within the new political structure is mostly represented as an indigenous lifestyle, one according to concord and reciprocity, in sharp distinction to the capitalist good judgment of “living higher” that's according to accumulation and expansion.

In this ethnography, Pellegrini explores the site of coca growers in Bolivia and their reluctance to embody the politics of indigeneity through rejecting the “indigenous peoples’ slot,” even whereas they grow to be a brand new center type. by way of staying in an area among ethnic different types and likewise among social periods, the coca growers holiday with the conventional version of social mobility in Latin the USA and create new types of political positioning that problem the dominant culturalist framework approximately indigeneity and peasants.
