CASTELNUOVO BIRABEN, Natalia. Mujeres indígenas y desarrollo: las experiencias de tres mujeres guaraníes del noroeste argentino. Cuicuilco [online]. 2013, vol.20, n.57, pp.11-46. ISSN 0185-1659.

The purpose of this article is to describe and analyze the way that Guaraní women living in various rural communities in the San Martín Department, in the Salta province of Argentina, started contacting and getting involved in development policies from the 1990's onwards, which were publicized through the NGO known by the Spanish acronym of Aretede (Regional Association of Developing Workers). To show how the indigenous women perceived and came to appropriate the development universe, I focused on three life histories, through which I intend to reveal how these women developed, creating new relationships and positioning themselves with a series of development players and agencies. The decision to gather the indigenous women's viewpoints on development is linked to the fact that many of the analyses made in Latin America have silenced their voices and actions, which contributed to eradicating their experiences. Therefore, I prioritized their points of view on development, above and beyond the way the development "apparatus" made them visible.

Keywords : indigenous women; career path; agency; development policies; northwestern Argentina.
