Resources, Volume 9, Issue 7 (July 2020) – 11 articles
Cover Story (view full-size image): Different resources may have distinct values and contrasting meanings depending on the social groups and the circumstances involved. Indigenous peoples do not claim to privately own resources but belong to specific places and fulfil their lives through meaningful interactions with land. This article discusses the socio-spatial trajectory and the meaning of land-based resources for the Guarani-Kaiowa in Brazil. The aim was to analytically integrate categories normally considered separately, that is, indigenous labor and land management, as well as the production of ethnicity and the reinforcement of politico-economic inequalities. The findings show how the dispossession and exploitation of resources observe ethnic references, and how ethnicity has been mobilized by unfairly impacted indigenous groups to inform their reactions and the search for alternative practices.
