Based upon substantial new research, this book investigates the heterogeneity of experiences of rural and urban indigenous women in Peru during the first two centuries of Spanish colonization. Using wills, as well as other notarial and legal documents, it discusses changes in their working lives and how their identity as "Indians" as well as women was shaped in a multicultural society. From their utilization of colonial law to seek redress, to their creation of urban dress styles that reflected their new positions as consumers and as producers under Spanish rule, the early colonial period witnessed a dramatic upheaval in indigenous women's lives. By analyzing the migration from rural to urban areas, interaction with Spanish as well as African society, and the lives of both plebeians and elites, the author provides a thorough picture of this transformational period.

From the Back Cover:

“This book presents a new and very needed view of indigenous women in colonial Peru. Graubart's study gives us a complete and complex vision of these women by examining their lives through the economic and legal transactions recorded in their testaments.”—Kimberly Gauderman, University of New Mexico
“Graubart's dedication to detail and close analysis highlight the topic of female agency in a male-dominated colonial world. The writing and organization are clear. This study is a welcome addition to the literature on the formation of colonial society, and the role of women in particular.”—Susan Elizabeth Ramirez, Texas Christian University

About the Author:

Karen B. Graubart is Assistant Professor of Colonial Latin American History at Cornell University.
