Resumen

Integrating scholarship on race as a global struc-ture and Latin American racial formations, I offer an account of racialization in Colombia. This arti-cle analyzes the racial dynamics of resistance to ex-tractivism in Colombia’s Universidad Campesina, uniting Indigenous and campesino groups like the Comunidad de Paz de San José de Apartadó. While the dominant race lexicon separates ‘campesinos’ from ‘Indigenous’ and ‘Black’ groups, I argue that the identifier campesino mestizo hides how San José’s farmers were ‘de-indigenized’ yet remain ra-cialized. If racialization works to dominate but also divide the subaltern, then Universidad Campesina participants’ cross-ethnic solidarity network both unveils and counters racism
