FAUNDES-PENAFIEL, Juan Jorge. Fundamental right to the cultural identity of indigenous peoples: a new paradigm in indigenous criminal defense in Chile in the face of the hegemonic Rule of Law. Izquierdas (Santiago) [online]. 2019, n.45, pp.51-78. ISSN 0718-5049.

We argue that the recognition of the fundamental right to the cultural identity of indigenous peoples has a legal impact and potentially emancipatory scope that introduces a fracture in the hegemonic conception of the Rule of Law, especially for the criminal defense of indigenous persons. To this end, we propose an evolutionary normative foundation of human rights and an intercultural critical theoretical proposal that we contrast with jurisprudential evidence.

Keywords : cultural identity right; indigenous peoples; criminal defense.
