Indigenous population and national censuses: historical overview2 Venezuelan national censuses have included distinctive quantifications of the indigenous population since they were first carried out as part of Guzmán Blanco’s state modernization project in the 1870s. Despite significant fluctuations in relative proportions, national censuses always projected a minority status for the indigenous population, which in turn was presented as the 27 28 venezuela reframed only source of internal ‘otherness’ (no other social identity category was registered until 2011).

This enfranchisement was expressed in broader access to both social services and institutionalized political participation, which adds to the continuing revalorization of indigeneity that has characterized Bolivarian governments over the past 14 years (Amodio 2007; Angosto-Ferrández 2008; Mosonyi 2009). In 2011, the urban indigenous population constituted two-thirds (66 per cent) of the total. 2 Indigenous peoples according to various state sources Year 1974 1982 1992 2001 2005 2011 2011 Source 9 DICA National census National census National census LOPCI10 Ministry of Indigenous Peoples National census Number of peoples 28 29 32 54 40 44 51 35 36 venezuela reframed by the growing number of indigenous peoples registered in censuses and other state sources from 2001 onwards – evidently, demographics can never explain the appearance of indigenous people in census records.

Indigenous actors have determinedly embarked on this avenue of political participation, which their new rights enhanced for them: the Bolivarian Constitution of 1999 guarantees differentiated indigenous representation in legislative organs. In this determined move, these actors have also fully incorporated themselves into the nationallevel political struggle, in support of either of the two political blocs that form it (chavismo and anti-chavismo). Against interpretations of this process as one of ‘co-option’ of indigenous activists and organizations, I will argue that it expresses the conscious choice of indigenous actors who see in their participation in institutional state politics a route for the advancement of their goals and, more broadly, for the creation and maintenance of broad popular blocs that can potentially present alternatives to neoliberal capitalism.
