BRIONES, Claudia. "Nuestra lucha recién comienza": Vivencias de Pertenencia y Formaciones Mapuche de Sí Mismo. Avá [online]. 2007, n.10, pp. 23-46. ISSN 1851-1694.
This article aims at showing that the concept of identity, including its politicization, is no more than the tip of the iceberg for understanding much more complicated processes of individuation and communalization that diversify, and at the same time assemble, what is understood and felt as "being Mapuche today". To do so, it explores factors that influence the diverse proposals and responses that arise in Mapuche cultural politics, focusing on pu wece, or young people's, reflections and positionalities. For this analysis, I use some specific concepts (national and provincial formations of alterity, state geographies of inclusion/exclusion, structured mobilities, aboriginality) that have been developed in previous works, and introduce the concept of Mapuche formations of self as structured and structuring articulations of individuality in terms of subjectivity, identity and agency.
