Indigenous Economies and the Social and Solidarity Economy

Abstract - EN

Despite cultural specificities with regard to what enlivens economic exchanges, SSE and indigenous economies have many commonalities within the community economy framework. This entry focuses on three of them, namely: (1) the way in which the SSE and indigenous economies foster the re-embeddedness of the economy through redistribution and reciprocity mechanisms; (2) the constitution of community-based aesthetics, presenting alternative ways of sense-making and valuing; and (3) the role that indigenous women and women in SSE have played in the political embeddedness of householding.
