MEDIOS INDIGENAS: A COMPARATIVE, PLURAL PROJECT

“Indigenous Media” has a continental focus that includes the indigenous populations of the whole of Latin America. It pays attention both to regional and local specificities, such as common aspects of vast areas like the Andes, the South American lowlands or Mesoamerica, and in the last instance, indigenous America. This enables us to gain a knowledge of the general panorama of creativity of indigenous populations through their communications media.

The project is designed to facilitate and multiply exchanges between academics, communicators, organisations, creators and indigenous population in general

The working team is mostly formed of researchers from Spanish universities, but the project is designed to facilitate and multiply exchanges between academics, communicators, organisations, creators and indigenous population in general.

Aims

The project aims to understand the uses – cultural, political and artistic – that indigenous populations make of the communications media. It has a comparative perspective, comparing regions, groups and cases systematically via a single logic of research and ordering of tasks. It also has an ethnographic perspective aimed at understanding indigenous logics in the use and consumption of the communications media.

The project aims to understand the uses – cultural, political and artistic – indigenous media from a comparative and ethnographic perspective.

Lastly, the aim is to build a collaborative project between diverse actors – indigenous and non-indigenous – on the social uses of the new communications media that form part of contemporary American indigenous cultural heritage.
