Abstract (English)

Linked to the question "of what is authentic Amerindian art" in contemporary production is a conception of natural ethnicity. Bouchard argues that "ethnicity is not a natural given inscribed in art works" and explores various approaches in recent semiotics to show their failure to locate tangible signs of ethnicity, concluding that "ethnic art constitutes a purely ideological category." Bibl. 8 p.
