Abstract:As the reindianization process (a generic Indianness) transforms into a reethnization (particularizing and specific) one, the regional terrain hosted a competition of identity politics that unveiled an extraordinary and hierarchical diversity of subject positions, social experiences and cultural identities underlying both the category of indigenous as well as that of mestizo . Color, a colonial legacy used to measure the degree of the racial-ethnic mixing, proved to still be alive. Color supported the claims of reethnized colonos who could not display the cultural diacritics of their ethnic identity, and puts a limit on the mestizo crossing borders. Through the delineation of Indian and mestizo hierarchies among old and new 'Indians,' reethnicized populations have resignified mestizaje and Indianness, making clearer the dynamics of inclusion and exclusion within the new pluriethnic imagined Colombian nation.
