LOERA GONZALEZ, Juan Jaime. Plurality of voices in wellbeing discourses: A reflective ethnographic experience. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2018, vol.50, n.3, pp.513-522. ISSN 0717-7356.

This article reflects on the challenge of visualizing the diversity of voices and discourses about wellbeing in ethnographic research. Based on an ethnographic fieldwork experience in two indigenous locations among the Rarámuri people in Mexico, the article explores the plurality of voices in building wellbeing ideas. The article focuses on examining two speeches as articulations of different visions of community and ways of living, and how they reflect positions of domination and marginalization within the indigenous people. The article concludes by reflecting on the ways in which researchers insert themselves in the field and the methodological risks of privileging some voices over others in the pursuit of identifying collective notions of wellbeing.

Palabras clave : Discourses; wellbeing; indigenous peoples; livelihoods.
