Etnicidad y autonomía en Cherán K'eri: una reflexión horizontal

In 2011, the inhabitants of the town of Cherán (Michoacán), tired of the dispossessions they suffered at the hands of organized crime, spontaneously initiated not only a process of self-defense, but also an unprecedented political project for their self-determination as an original and autonomous P'urhépecha community. This case raises the question that guides this paper: How to understand Cherán's autonomous political project from an ethnic perspective? We start from broad notions, which will be properly delimited and conceptualized, and which in turn shed light on a living process where the political, ethnic, social, historical and economic overlap.
