Indigenous cultural identity in the pedagogical discourse of history. A perspective of the Latin American curriculum
- This article presents the results of a research aimed to analyze the comprehension of the identity promoted by the historical teaching as a school formative dimension, in the context of Latin American countries that encourage intercultural education. This study was developed from a content analysis in a qualitative perspective, using curricular documents from the History subject of eight different Latin American countries as a textual support. Research results show the predominance of a concept of identity understood as a homogeneous construct and associated with the sense of social belonging and self-affirmation based on national identities, however that the participating nations of this research, assume the recognition of the indigenous cultural diversity and agree to allow these social groups enjoying their culture and history within the education system.
