A Question of Color
This chapter takes a look at indio within its cultural context and details the process of obtaining a cédula (known as cedulazation) at the Junta Central Electoral (JCE) in Santiago. In 1998, mulato was introduced as a new color category on the new digitized cédulas, marking the first time that a mixed category, with its implication of African ancestry, was used as an official state category on the national ID card. The chapter explores the ways in which the JCE officials defined people in terms of color, with mulato and indio being mixed categories.
