Ten contributions explore the formerly ignored ethnohistorical sources of the last wills and testaments of indigenous people in colonial Spanish America. The volume has three goals: to introduce readers to the history of the production of the materials, to examine the impact of testament writing on colonial societies, and to describe the content of the documents and explore the opportunities presented for detailed analysis of indigenous life.
