This chapter shows how areas in Colombia that have no understanding of recognition of rights in property use extensive land and resource claims as their basis for self-governance and autonomy. It starts with a discussion of the issue of the Salvajina Dam, which flooded specific indigenous areas, causing a local protest. From there the discussion turns to the changes in coffee, gold, and local administration that occurred as a result of the Salvajina Dam. These changes led to a widespread migration to other areas in the country in an effort to look for new jobs. The chapter also shows how the social rights of the peasants came to fruition and how property became constituted as ethnic territories.
