Exploring how people from Andean communities seek progress and social mobility by moving to the cities, Cecilie Odegaard demonstrates the changing significance of kinship, reciprocity and ritual in an urban context. The making and un-making of notions of the Indigenous, communal work, and gender is central in this analysis, and is discussed against the historical backdrop of the land occupations in Peruvian cities since the 1930s.
