PALOMEQUE, S. The "History" of the Ethnic Lords  of Casabindo and Cochinoca (1540-1662). Andes [online]. 2006, n.17, pp.139-194. ISSN 1668-8090.

The recovery and historical analysis of the stories of the native elders of the town of Casabindo in 1662 about the history of their people and their authorities since the end of the "time of the Inca" are the main concerns of this article. There, the history of this native group is included into the political and military history of the long and obscure period of the Spanish invasion against the native population of this town in particular, but also of the towns located in neighboring areas, in the territories that today conform northern Argentina and Chile and southern Bolivia. In order to understand the stories coming from the native population and include them into the study, we must recover, modify and reinterpret the usual stories of the Jujuy provincial history in the period of the Spaniards' final conquest of the region. These tended to recover the vision of the last conquerors, who could be named as the inhabitants of the Government of the Tucumán, avoiding the participation of other groups and colonial authorities such as those of the Charcas inhabitants. A detailed consideration of the actions taken by different armies and colonial authorities and the connection between the documents available and the different interests in conflict permit to carry out a new type of analysis of the documents related to native societies. Up to now, those documents only provided information that was understood as contradictory or that reflected a high lack of organization in these societies.

Palabras clave : Native authorities; Spanish invasion; Jurisdictional conflicts; South Andean Region.
