Gonzalo Rubio Orbe

Gonzalo Rubio Orbe (1909 - 24 October 1994) was born in Otavalo into a farming family, the second of seven children and the oldest of three sons. Rubio received a Doctorate in Education from the Central University of Ecuador, and then distinguished himself as an anthropologist and historian of the indigenista school. The Indigenistas were a radical group of intellectuals who placed the indigenous pre-Columbian heritage of Latin America on an equal footing to that of the Spanish conquistador heritage.

His principal work is The Ecuadorian Indians (Los Indios Ecuatorianos 1988), as well as a great number of articles in anthropologial journals. His brother Alfredo Rubio Orbe was a practising lawyer, but also contributed to indigenismo principally writing on legal issues relating to indigenous people.
