At the end of the twentieth century, several indigenous writers emerged in Colombia, producing literature committed to the historical and social processes of their respective ethnic groups. These authors, key figures in the process of recovery of the indigenous soul, spirit and dignity, have been or are leaders of their communities, teachers and fighters, facing the contradictions and conflicts within dominant society and culture, as well as their own internal tensions. "Escritores indígenas de Colombia: Cuatro textos fundacionales" studies the four main indigenous writers from Colombia, including: Manuel Quintín Lame, Vicencio Torres Márquez, Esperanza Aguablanca-Berichá and Maximiano José Roberto. Each of these authors is a pioneer of creative processes that denote cultural, social and even economic recovery for Amerindian people in the country.
