The Autonomía Guaraní Charagua Iyambae is a case study of Bolivian legal pluralism as an indicator of ethnic relationship. The paper discusses the ethnographic data from the Author’s fieldwork among the Guarani people of Charagua to show that the indigenous autonomy develops as a battlefield between conflictive social agents. By analysing the election process of the Guarani Autonomy, the Author shows how claims have been translated in legal instruments. The aim is to discuss the guarani political strategy in order to explain the causal link between the creation of new self-governing institutions and the ethnic divisions concerning the ways in which the guarani identity must express itself politically. The Author analyses the interlegal context dynamics consisting of separate legal habitus interacting with State laws and shows how an indigenous group interprets the Law within a process of self-determination that through legal discourse describes the conflictive social dynamics of identity defence.

Abstract

The Autonomía Guaraní Charagua Iyambae is a case study of Bolivian legal pluralism as an indicator of ethnic relationship. The paper discusses the ethnographic data from the Author’s fieldwork among the Guarani people of Charagua to show that the indigenous autonomy develops as a battlefield between conflictive social agents. By analysing the election process of the Guarani Autonomy, the Author shows how claims have been translated in legal instruments. The aim is to discuss the guarani political strategy in order to explain the causal link between the creation of new self-governing institutions and the ethnic divisions concerning the ways in which the guarani identity must express itself politically. The Author analyses the interlegal context dynamics consisting of separate legal habitus interacting with State laws and shows how an indigenous group interprets the Law within a process of self-determination that through legal discourse describes the conflictive social dynamics of identity defence.
