“This superb volume brings together a veritable who’s-who of the scholars who have pushed the study of indigenous intellectuals into a coherent subfield of ethnohistory. Their essays are populated by a wide array of educated, native men from colonial Mexico, Oaxaca, and Peru, from interpreters and translators to lettered noblemen. The colonial cultural patterns that emerge are as fascinating and illuminating as the indigenous individuals who are brought to life in the essays. A must-read for all scholars of colonial Latin America.”

(Matthew Restall, coauthor of Latin America in Colonial Times)  ”
