This chapter explores black and indigenous participation in both the 1895 Liberal Revolution and the Concha Rebellion of 1913–1916. It analyzes the racial transcript that lay behind subaltern participation as well as the subsequent impact on nationalist racial ideologies and the collective consciousness of the two groups. The participation of black and indigenous troops in the civil war of 1895 was absolutely central to the Liberal victory, yet this popular effort has largely been marginalized within histories of the period, which make almost no mention of the racial composition of revolutionary leader Eloy Alfaro's armies.
