Writing histories of indigenous workers provides a distinct opportunity to think about transnational approaches. Looking at states and labor systems from indigenous perspectives encourages scholars in historiography to think about the persistence of colonial structures of power and their influence in shaping regionally specific racial categories within the global capitalist market.

Keywords: indigenous workers; historiography; colonialism; race

Chapter.  2418 words.
