If during Mariano Turpo’s time as an activist, the main political struggle in the countryside was aimed against local landowners, current rural activism is aimed against mining corporations. In the last two years, venture capital has made serious incursions in the Andes: its mountains are considered among the richest repositories of gold in the world. So earth-beings are endangered, and political conflict has become overly ontological. Building on the work of theorists that have inspired the book, the epilogue discusses conceptually this new political manifestation as well as formalized proposals from intellectuals (both indigenous and nonindigenous).
