Indigenous Catholicism in the Americas

We seek proposals that explore the ways Native communities in the Americas have been shaped by, engaged with, resisted, and/or indigenized Catholicism. Proposals might include analysis of indigenous Catholic practices, including memorialization, ritual, protest, education, or family life. We likewise welcome proposals that shed light on the borders between indigenous communities and their non-indigenous contemporaries, as these borders have been defined in conversation with Catholicism.
