Abstract

The nation-building in Australia, Canada, and Mexico has been characterized by a standing tension between the original communities that previously inhabited these territories, generically categorized as "Indians" or "Aborigines"; and the new populations of Anglo-Saxon, and Iberian origin. The latter led the construction of national states that were legitimized according to the idea of a homogeneous national community that excluded cultural minorities. During the second half of the 20th century, various mobilizations of indigenous communities in Australia, Canada, and Mexico have challenged the survival of this national construction, which is contrary to the recognition of the social diversity inherent to these states.
