Colonialism in Context: An Aymara Reassessment of ‘Colonialism’,‘Coloniality’ and the ‘Postcolonial World’”

Burman, Anders LU (2009) In Kult p.117-129
Abstract
This article examines how Colonialism — as a cosmologically

informed process of profound existential and political implications — is understood, experienced and conceptualized by Aymara shaman activists. By contextualizing the term Colonialism this article reassesses not only the supposed postcolonial nature of the world, but also the distinctions between colonialism and coloniality.
