RODRIGUEZ, Lorena B.. The Ingamana of Andalgalá at the Beginning of the 18th Century: Notes on Memory and Identity. Andes [online]. 2008, n.19, pp.279-298. ISSN 1668-8090.

The aim of this paper is to reflect on the place and relevance that memory could have had for the uprooted populations of the Calchaquí Valley to reconstruct collective identities as well as to make symbolic and fundamental material claims. I focus my study on the Ingamana people, natives from the south Calchaqui valley relocated to Andalgalá and congregated in a "pueblo de indios" after the Calchaquí wars. I concentrate on their memories and pose the questions of who remembered what, and why these recollections were kept alive. These questions help me to understand the importance of memories in the development of a sense of belonging among the Ingamana. The main source, now at Archivo Histórico de Catamarca, is a file opened in 1718 by Pedro Camisac demanding the colonial authorities that he should be appointed cacique of Ingamana.

Palabras clave : Memory; Identity; Natives; Uprooting; Ingamana.
