Chapter Summary

Though it is true that the colonial élites, who endured even with the formation of the republic, never abandoned their heartfelt desire for the physical extermination of the indigenous population, it is nationalist discourse that has caused the greatest destruction of the material and spiritual continuity of collective indigenous entities. The multiculturalisms and multiethnicisms today used by the children of state-nationalism to put a gloss on their rhetoric, far from overcoming nationalist serialisation, instead compensate for its frustrations. If 'revolutionary nationalism' was presented as the bureaucratic consciousness of the state, then leftism with Marxist pretentions was presented as the theologisation of state-reason. The author talks about both historians with native backgrounds as well as Indianist publications. It is essential to understand the programmatic vehemence of the communal association, reinvented daily, and the terrible language of common action.

Keywords: colonial narrative; communal narrative; indigenous movement; state-nationalism; state-socialism
