(p.49) Two Self-Governance
Turf Wars
Stanford University Press

After discussing autonomy, the next chapter turns to self-governance. It starts with an account on how the Miners' Cooperative was formed as a result of a conflict between the local miners and the Gilinsky brothers, who bid for mining rights to Cerro Teta. Aside from the issue surrounding Cerro Teta, the chapter looks at the landholding expansion that occurred in Mira Soles and the efforts to claim the hill of Cerro Teta as an ethnic territory in a bid to lessen the conflicts. The chapter ends with a discussion on autonomy and self-governance with regards to the claims on Alsacia and Cerro Teta.
