This article studies ethnic social movement autonomy claims in three regions of Colombia. It maintains that place-based and regime-specific political processes condition institutional change affecting common property regimes. The article finds that to assert local self-determination and territorial control, ethnic social movements (a) respond to territorial regimes threatening local autonomy; (b) use innovative tactics to negotiate autonomy; and (c) engage in deliberation to redefine identities and understand the conditions limiting local autonomy.
