Abstract

This presentation examines the transformation of the Indigenous socio-political landscape in post-democratic Chile, focusing on the state’s implementation of neoliberal multiculturalism as a governance strategy. It explores how this approach shapes Indigenous cultural activities and influences expectations of urban indigeneity, without challenging the state’s neoliberal agenda. The analysis delves into how Mapuche civil society in urban areas navigates state interactions through models of ethno-bureaucracy and strategic essentialism. Despite efforts to align their interests with neoliberal multicultural policies, these policies foster distinct dynamics of inclusion and exclusion, ultimately leading to a fragmented Mapuche community in urban settings.
