This chapter analyzes how millennial, messianic, apocalyptic, and utopian ideas contributed to indigenous peoples’ response to conquest. The case material is diverse — from the preconquest Maya to current movements — with particular emphasis on the War of Mixtón, the Taqui Onqoy movement, the Pueblo Revolt, the Caste War of the Yucatan, and the eighteenth-century Andean rebellions (including those of Túpac Amaru II and Túpac Catari).
