The epilogue argues that the truce indigenous peoples and the state established in the last three decades of the twentieth century came undone in the twenty-first century as a new set of circumstances fueled a backlash against “special” rights for indigenous peoples. Briefly discussing some of these developments, it nonetheless urges scholars and others to take account of the far-reaching effects of indigenous activism on the settler state in the late twentieth century.
