Resumen

Este artículo examina la relación que existe entre la democracia con los pueblos indígenas apartir del concepto Homo sacer (Homines sacri), acuñado por Giorgio Agamben (1998). El argumentocentral es que actos cometidos contra el Indio Americano o sus propiedades (tierras yrecursos naturales) pueden ser interpretados no solo como violaciones a los derechos humanos sino como estructuras políticas permanentes de violencia y exclusión. El artículo revisa el caso de Mary y Carrie Dann, en una disputa por tierras con los EE.UU., y que la Comisión Interamericanade Derechos Humanos (CIDH) ha considerado como violatorio de la Declaración Americana de los Derechos y Deberes del Hombre (Declaración Americana). La revisión del caso se basa en el reporte de la CIDH (2002).Palabras clave: Shoshón Occidental, Mary y Carrie Dann, Declaración Americana, EstadosUnidos de América, Giorgio Agamben.Abstract:This article examines the relationship between Democracy and Indigenous Peoples from the perspective of theconcept Homo Sacer (Homines Sacri) coined by Giorgio Agamben (1998). The central argument is that acts of power committed against their rights and properties (lands and natural resources) can be interpreted not only as human rights violations but also as permanent political structures of violence and exclusion. This document reviews the case of Mary and Carrie Dann in a land dispute with the U.S. that the Inter- American Commissionof Human Rights (IACHR) has regarded as a violation of the American Declaration of the Rights and Duties of Man (American Declaration). The revision of the case is based on the IACHR´s report of 2002.Keywords: Western Shoshone, Mary and Carrie Dann, American Declaration, United States of America, Giorgio Agamben.
