This chapter examines the changing terms and scope of ethnic representation in Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru. It discusses how these Latin American states wrote indigenous people out of formal politics only to be confronted at the end of the twentieth century with the rise of significant indigenous movements demanding recognition, representation and reform. It argues that the mobilization of indigenous and popular communities is both a means of widening the democratic spectrum and a deep source of political tension and highlights the desire of some indigenous groups to be represented by officials with the same ethnicity as them.

Keywords:   ethnic representation, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, indigenous people, indigenous movements, political tension
