Abstract

Drawing from ethnographic interviews with Miskito and Garifuna communities on the Honduran Atlantic coast, this article reflects on the Consensus Mapping of Shared Boundaries Project, an indigenous countermapping initiative inside the Honduran Mosquitia. It argues that racial power and racialized processes constrain the emancipatory possibilities of countermapping in multiple ways. It concludes that such power and processes legitimate the devaluation of subaltern land claims and, in Honduras, contribute to the legitimacy of ladino incursions inside Miskito and Garifuna space.
