This Group of International Research (GDRI), created in 2012 and renewed in 2016, joins together several research centres and institutions from France, Peru, Colombia and Ecuador, all of which, independently or in concert, research political anthropology of the Amerindian movement in the Amazon.

Since the last three decades at the very least, the indigenous societies of the Amazon have become active players on the political chessboards of their respective countries. This phenomenon of “political fabrication”, or the politicization of the indigenous movement by Amerindians themselves, is observed in all Amazonian countries, though with particularities and differing intensities in each one. The Apocamo research group aims to understand the process of construction of an Amerindian political representation via a comparative analysis of the specificities unique to each country and of the ways in which today’s political borders are shifting and changing. This research reinforces the reflection on the re-composition and diffusion of new conceptions and forms of political action within the Amerindian communities of occidental Amazonia.
