Chapter 3 discusses the notion of gender complementarity through kab’awil as an achievable horizon for indigenous peoples. The chapter focuses on the work of indigenous women across regions and nations, demonstrating the way that the double gaze allows them to see beyond ideas of tradition that impinge on their sense of autonomy. The chapter underscores the work of Rosa María Chávez, Calixta Gabriel Xiquín, Maya Cú, Briceida Cuevas Cob, María Enriqueta Lunes, Angelina Díaz Ruíz, Irma Pineda Santiago, and Natalia Toledo Paz.
