Once described as the "most important institution of the Peruvian republic," Indigenous communities and their trajectories have lied at the core of the making of state powers in the Andes. This presentation offers a reflection of the centrality of twentieth and twenty-first-century Comunidades, their transformation into Campesinos, and the rise of a new form of Andean livelihood in aftermath of political violence, social conflict, and climate change.
