Abstract [en]

This study departs in a decolonial understanding of the Indigenous ethical-philosophical conceptualization of the Good Life: Sumak Kawsay/Buen-vivir. We argue that we need toview this concept as integrated by cultural, socio-economic and ecological dimensions, separate but interrelated values and identities that sometimes clash. One of our arguments likewise emphasizes that the class perspective is sometimes subordinated in the debates on Buen-vivir and therefore we pay special attention to the element of social justice, which is also central in decolonial theory on the capitalist colonial matrix of power and the strategies to disconnect from these structures of domination and marginalization. We view the indigenous contribution of Buen-vivir as a decolonial discourse and project. For the understanding of different interpretations and expressions of Buen-vivir, we must likewise consider particularities of indigenous peoples in terms of varying ethnic-cultural identity, that is, the relative and situational comprehensions of indigeneity. Methodologically, we should emphasize decades of ethnographic fieldwork, as well as critical reading of the debate on Sumak Kawsay/Buen-vivir and the theoretical contributions in the field of decolonial thought.

Abstract [es]

El punto de partida del presente estudio está en una comprensión decolonial de la conceptualización ético-filosófica indígena de la Buena Vida: Sumak Kawsay/Buen-vivir. Argumentamos que debemos analizar este concepto como integrado por dimensiones culturales, socioeconómicas y ecológicas; valores e identidades separados pero interrelacionados que a veces chocan entre sí. Se enfatiza, entre nuestros argumentos, que la perspectiva de la clase a veces está relativamente subordinada en los debates sobre Buen-vivir y por lo tanto prestamos atención particular al elemento de justicia social, el cual también es central en la teoría decolonial sobre la matriz colonial capitalista de poder y las estrategias para desconectarse de estas estructuras de dominación y marginalización. Consideramos que la contribución indígena del Buen-vivir más que todo debe verse como un discurso y proyecto decolonial. Para la comprensión de las diferentes interpretaciones y expresiones de Buen-vivir, también debemos considerar particularidades de los pueblos indígenas en términos de variaciones en la identidad étnico-cultural, es decir, las comprensiones relativas situacionales de la indigeneidad. Metodológicamente, debemos enfatizar décadas de trabajo de campo etnográfico, así como la lectura crítica del debate sobre Sumak Kawsay/Buen-vivir y las contribuciones teóricas en el campo del pensamiento decolonial.
