Abstract:To understand the erasure of indigenous urbanites from official and academic representations and to situate their notorious presence in obscure manuscripts, this inquiry approaches its main sources, legal documents, as writings, embodiments of discourses, and inscriptions of practices. In so doing, it studies the production of colonial knowledge and truth, relations of power, and the formation of gendered subjects (Foucault 1984; Stoler 1991). The main contribution of this ethnography of writing is that it addresses the specifics of colonialism in Santa Fe, while at the same time situating it within broader theoretical concerns, such as early colonialism, modernity, gender, and sexuality, and the formation of selves.
