Abstract | Full Text

From the decolonial inflection, the counterinsurgency policies implemented by the Mexican government against the indigenous peoples of Chiapas are analyzed, as a strategy of war that is also the continuation of the colonization of power, knowing and being and the Zapatista Autonomy as a process decolonial that builds other ways of being and doing politics. Through the biographical accounts of women-mothers and boys and girls, the role of collective memory in the educational and resistance-rebellious practices of families and in the construction of their political project of emancipation is analyzed. Children more than being the recipients of the teachings of their parents, grandparents and promoters of autonomous education are the re-creators of the memory, culture, organization and resistance of their people.
