The political violence in Ayacucho, Peru affected the lives of indigenous peasants in a number of ways. Those who originally supported Shining Path faced a daily threat of attacks by state counterinsurgency forces. In Chuschi and Quispillaccta, these forces carried out mass kidnappings and executions of indigenous peasants. In Huaychao, it was the guerrillas who massacred men, women, and children in retaliation for the community's counterinsurgency efforts. This chapter explores the implications of the armed conflict on Ayacucho's indigenous peasantry regarding authority and justice, gender, and the state and civil society.
