Initial Peasant Resistance to Shining Path

This chapter discusses the counterrebellion in Huaychao, which symbolized the indigenous peasants' violent rejection of the guerrillas and altered the historical trajectory of the community, region, and country. It begins with a brief overview of the historical context in which Peru's counterinsurgency militias developed. After an in-depth examination at the counterrebellion in Huaychao, the chapter discusses how Huaychaonos' decision to mobilize against Shining Path can be seen as a wartime extension of experimenting with forms of extralegal justice.

Keywords:   counterrebellion, Huaychao, indigenous peasants, counterinsurgency militias, Shining Path, extralegal justice
